Support for fine-grained data management has all but disappeared from modern operating systems such as Android and iOS. Instead, the people must rely on each individual application to manage their data properly - e.g., to delete their emails, documents, and photos in full upon request; to not collect more data than required for its function; and to back up their data to reliable backends. Yet, research papers and media articles constantly remind them of the poor data management practices applied by the authors' applications.
