So my stepfather is super into stuff like InfoWars and stuff, he's an uber paranoid guy with technology in particular. He wants my whole family to install a software on our devices to "protect us". I have much less stock in his concerns, but i do sympathize. His end goal is to have all of us on some remote network separate from everyone else, and he freaks out over the fact i have Google assistant on my phone.
In an attempt to console him, i've told him i have administrator rights over my devices, which means i've disabled network reports to manufacturers, which is true, but he still doesnt think i'm secure. Is there some sort of way i can convince him we aren't being targeted by the government just because we're conservative? He seems to think the gov't is profiling us and stuff, it's complete bullcrap. If there is a way i can make him at least assume i'm not being wire tapped or something, let me know so i can spare myself a headache.
