I don't use google neither have chrome in my computer, Google has become the worst nightmare when it comes to internet monopolies and their influence just keeps growing.

My wife has chrome installed on her lap top. Last night, while her laptop was open, she told me she thought she had low sex drive. This morning, for the first time ever, she had not one but TWO ads in her email for products to correct low sex drive in women. I don't think it's a coincidence.

If you're that worried about Big Bad Evil Google eavesdropping on your "Me Time" sessions you can simply uninstall the microphone driver from your computer.
Or here's a shocker. Don't use Google Chrome.
Even better! Read your freaking EULA's. Nobody does, but if you took the time to even skim it you could make sure there's nothing there that says "By installing this software you agree to be a possible organ donor for Google CEO's"

True, Google itself might not—and probably is not— spying on people, but once that technology is there—and activated— it could be used by a third party, say the government/NSA, if they were to tap or hack into it.
What does that do? Give the NSA a cue that when you say "Ok Google, sign out" is when they should really start paying attention because that's when you think it's not listening?

Just remember to say "Ok Google, sign out" before
you expect to have any private conversations.
Yes, it may take a little training, but just act like
your at work, until you say the magic words, and
you're be just fine.
