Do you think Google and other apps should be tracking us everytime? And everywhere? 
Why don't they respect our privacy even when i disabled the Google app. 
This is very very bad to know that Google alone has made 29 attempts in a single night. Collecting our data and selling to different sites, apps or government's. 

Is there any way to protect tracking ?
I've just registered for the duckduckgo's app tracking protection and do you think is it good to use something like this ?

All these companies like Google, Facebook etc..they do track all our data, mic (what we talk), camera, GPS to gather the information so that they can show advertisements as well as they sell data to other market players. Imagine, why would Google give all services free for initial use. This is how they make money. Till now IOS is the most secured.

They might be free but I don't want to use them and i think they should stop collecting our data in the first place and I didn't give them any permission to track me in different apps more over I've disabled the Google app.

We should stop encouraging this.
What do you think ?

If you are using Android then there would be some amount of tracking even if you completely disable some Google apps. If you want to completely stop the tracking then you can use something like graphene os( google it) or iOS.

That's true but don't you think, they should allow us choose what we share with apps and let us know what data they are collecting and why ?

That is already present in iOS. In app store there's a section where each app developer has to mention what data they are collecting and for what reason. Google is also doing something similar but it won't be coming until next year
