Default what photo hosting site should I go with?

Okay guys, I know there's been a lot of you who have issues like I have with Photobucket and their third-party posting policy.
Just trying to figure out which way to go and Google photos seems to share too much info for my taste.
Too lazy to search around all the threads and look for answers LOL!
My question is what photo hosting site should I go with that doesn't share my info but allows my pics to be displayed on frf?
Let me know which ones you guys are using and any opinions you have would be appreciated.

I never use a host, I only upload my pictures from my device to FRF.

But no matter what you do where you go big brother is watching, sharing and stealing your info.

If your plugged in and connected to the internet or use a cell phone you have no privacy at all.

I use imgur.com.

Its easy to share anywhere, gives you lots of options as far as photo size, so if you share on a forum that doesn't resize the picture you can select to share it as a large thumbnail or use it to get a small thumbnail for your avatar, etc. you can create albums, edit the pictures, etc. all for free.

Google Photos. I don't know if there is a limit for others, but I have unlimited for using the Pixel.
