Fizz, YES, some of us are paranoid. Or maybe cautious about who might know when we're not at home, or about our banking info, and the list goes on. There is a bunch of personal information floating on the internet that is not in one's favor, I don't want mine out there, and I don't feel the need to have my personal information sold when I don't make a profit from the sale.

If you believe that opting out from using a few apps will keep your activities secret and secure you are deluding yourself.
Your internet provider can track every location you visit, how long you spent there what you downloaded and your current location.
Everybody knows how trustworthy the big carriers are, your best interest in mind and all that.

Bottom line..
If you're not a terrorist or pedophile you should have no worries.

My personal information has been leaked 3 times. All by some form of government entity.
1. VA lost a laptop with my info on it
2. Illinois dept of unemployment
3. Office of personnel management (including my fingerprints)

Never from my cell phone activity.

One more off-topic post: the difference between those activities, is that the agencies you've mentioned are tasked with keeping your information private, and failed. The information from your cell phone activity is given freely when you agree to install and use a particular app. They have it and use it, but you've agreed to allow that. Big difference.
