I want to have control over what happens with my online presence so I absolutely do not want any software to be able to log in to any of my online accounts and post/change/delete things. Ever. Nor do I know where the login credentials that Ubuntu Online Accounts uses is stored, i.e. who has access to that information? Allowing software to access my accounts automatically is bad, but potentially giving other people access to my accounts is even worse.
However, I do like to chat and was happy with Empathy storing passwords locally since it would only allow me to chat but didn't do anything else.
I want to fully disable Ubuntu Online Accounts on my machine while still using chat software. How can I do this?
