And I can bet that Google will spy on your home network from that shitty chromebook

They already do that from my Android phone, and I'm sure as hell not going Apple. Linux phones aren't there yet, maybe in a few years, but I'll still need an Android phone for the same reasons I'd need a Chromebok, bank apps will never support Linux phones. And yeah, like everybody said, VLANs. I already have one for untrusted IoT devices, I'll just spin up another for Chromebooks.

Not mine. I have a VLAN for that.

Yeah VLANs seem like a viable option for the average user. ;-)

It's true, but you can say that about almost anything. For example, for the "average" user lemmy is confusing compared to reddit.

Besides, I'm just talking about how I tackle diseases inside my network, not what the average user should do.

Creating an account on lemmy.world is not much more difficult than creating one on reddit. Configurating VLANs is another story.

I have a router that can do it. Then I realized it felt like work to learn it so I stopped.
