Google dominates our smartphone and computer. There are very few people who do not use at least one Mountain View company service. One of the most used is research, however, you are not required to do so. There are services and Apps that do almost the same as Google’s.

That being said, let’s look at some services and Apps from competitors to Google products. Unfortunately not everyone is perfect and leaving Google services will be complicated. Even so, if you prefer your privacy, this is an article that you should take into consideration. Google has a lot of information about you and we always think that if one day the company changes its ” modus operandi ” we are literally plotted.
