Tapatalk records all of the links you click.

So you are concerned that Tapatalk tracks the links you click out of their app? Or are you saying they track links that you click in other apps? I'm not concerned about the former, but I am the latter.

They track the links within the app.

Hmmm. If I read this correctly, it's also the same reason why when you post something on Facebook it redirects you first to a bit.ly redirecting page. It tracks this to know where the link got clicked (IIRC), it's all part of statistics, and it helps tailor certains ads and/or links to other websites for the things you seem to like. IDK why tapatalk would do it, but that might be an answer.

So the Tapatalk app tracks what the Tapatalk is doing?  I just can't say that I care about that.  But I suppose I can understand why someone might.

 

Anymore, I just assume that every app tracks what I do with it.  I don't though want it tracking things I do in other apps.  That would be crossing the line.  

 

I'm no fan of Tapatalk, anyway.  So no skin off my back.  I wish that Forum Runner still supported their product and kept up to date.  Just to have a choice.  Tapatalk is essentially a monopoly now.

Well, for me not only is the privacy thing an issue (minor one for me.) But the amount of time it takes for it to redirect the Tapatalk ref link into the actual link in my browser takes ages. With the redirect removed, opening links from Tapatalk into my browser has become a lot quicker.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
