This was an EYE-OPENER to me. READ. ENOUGH SAID!! I HATE GOOGLE!!!! Start sending it to your pals!


On March 1st, Google will implement its new, unified privacy policy, which will affect data Google has collected on you prior to March 1st as well as data it collects on you in the future. Until now, your Google Web History (your Google searches and sites visited) was cordoned off from Google's other products. This protection was especially important because search data can reveal particularly sensitive information about you, including facts about your location, interests, age, sexual orientation, religion, health concerns, and more. If you want to keep Google from combining your Web History with the data they have gathered about you in their other products, such as YouTube or Google Plus, you may want to remove all items from your Web History and stop your Web History from being recorded in the future.


Here's How You Can Do That:



Go to the Source link for the step by step instructions, with pics!!

TIME IS RUNNING OUT-if this is a concern for you.... and I believe it should be. Good luck.

Thanks!

This is good to know, but it wouldn't surprise me if they weren't already spying on us.

What the new privacy policy they have been told they are NOT to institue in Europe as it breaches existing privacy laws. Lets see if the toothless waste of space in Brussels do anything

Glad they had pictures to go along with the instructions, lordy knows what would happen if they didn't!



My history has been turned off since I signed up to google.

You'd think if one was so concerned about privacy, they'd have known they could turn history off...

I suggest creating a google search bomb that everyone should run containing all the search terms that would aggravate the alphabet agencies. ATS, Infowars, jason bermas, birth certificate, Sunburn missile, taliban, koran burning, on and on...
everyone run it, and create jscripts that would run it when a user clicks on a link, say, free porn.
we are all guilty of thought crimes, might as well let them know.

Never had it turned on. Why would anybody?

Is it supposed to turn on automatically or something after the new policy kicks in?

So if you aren't signed into your Google account, does it still track you? If I go to Google history and am not signed in, it requires a sign in to view history. Signing out each time you are done viewing gmail mail would also benefit????

I don't have a google account, but I use it to do searches sometimes. Does that mean I am free of being tracked?

Well I should clarify, does that mean I am free of Google using my history against me, since I don't have a ccount with them?

They'll have the searches linked to your IP but they wont be linked to your Google sign-in services directly.

Just not being logged into Gmail while searching would go a long way to quelling the Big Brother paranoia.

I'm hella paranoid about everything I do and I'm convinced that everything I've done is sitting in some bound book in a government office somewhere and I still havent really found any cause for alarm in this privacy policy change.

Maybe I'm just not using Google the way everyone else is?

Thanks for the reply, I will just sign out each time I access Gmail, which isn't too often.

Mine is turned off already, but I think I'll look into Bing now and see if they are less intrusive.

this is what I have done, turn off your web history and filters as well as check your search found out they, once you signup, will have a list of sites you have visited, clear that as well, only used bing 2 times, and they were there.

Do you really believe this will stop the powers that be from knowing what , where and when you do something .

They have been watching and listening to whatever and whoever they want for years. The only way to stop them is to forsake all electronics and even then they can watch and listen to you of they so choose.
