    For android Lineage os the best with F-droid as a app store.

    Many will disagree with me but Lineage os has the best support and is updated once a month. None of your privacy ROMs can compete with that

      Yeah but Linage OS does not relock the bootloader for extra security so if you lose physical access to your phone it is now vulnerable.

        True so don’t lose your phone. Its encrypted and you can use third party apps to auto wipe under certain circumstances

          the more third party apps you have, the higher your attack surface and a decrease in security. I love my mods but this isn’t really a solution and should be an os feature.

            How would that be implemented? The way stock does it is though proprietary software

              what is proprietary about a locked bootloader? the only android fork i can recommend is GrapheneOS. you relock the bootloader on that as well.

                Oh, I though you were talking about lock out and findmydevice

                  find my device would be more difficult to implement without a decently sized company backing it but a lock out function wouldn’t be that difficult. it just needs to be implemented into the os itself rather than rely on the trustworthiness of a third party dev.

                    I use a app on F-droid called findmydevice. It can use a custom server but I just opted to SMS via a password

          True but I work outside and have lost devices before sometimes it is out of are control and we still misplace devices especially when the fall out a pocket I was only pointing out I personally won’t use it for that reason is all I still would rather use Lineage OS over Graphene OS but I don’t think I will because of that one thing. I am looking at buying a used pixel hopefully soon.
