Prayer and mental health apps have been found to be highly privacy invasive, including apps like: Hallow, Abide, Pray.com and KJB Daily Verse.
Pro Tip: you don't need an app to pray
@George I suggest that, if you're using Android, install F-Droid; use open source, which is much more respectful of privacy.
I would advise against using Apple products in general.
I use F-Droid for some things, but also Shelter. It was time-consuming to setup, but I keep many occasional or questionable apps in the Android work profile in a "frozen" state. They come to life only when I need them, and even then are (mostly) isolated from the normal environment.
All of this reduces the problem, but isn't a fix.
@pjfasano I also use Universalis and consider them safe, as currently offered.
If they were to change leadership or be merged with something else, that would immediately change.
