Google announces privacy changes across products; users can’t opt out

Image

Google said Tuesday it will require users to allow the company to follow their activities across e-mail, search, YouTube and other services, a radical shift in strategy that is expected to invite greater scrutiny of its privacy and competitive practices.

The information will enable Google to develop a fuller picture of how people use its growing empire of Web sites. Consumers will have no choice but to accept the changes.

The policy will take effect March 1 and will also impact Android mobile phone users, who are required to log in to Google accounts when they activate their phones.'

Read the full story here

I personally have quit chrome and gone back to FF over this :madz:

Google will soon know far more about who you are and what you do on the Web. The Web giant announced Tuesday that it plans to follow the activities of users across nearly all of its ubiquitous sites, including YouTube, Gmail and its leading search engine.

What you dont think streetview is related. Think again as googles intelligent ip mapping knows where you are and now google sees where you are too. I get it that google provide good services but they have a lot of power :ninjaz:

Makes one wonder just how many users of "all things google" are going to bail (or threaten to bail) over this.

Also wonder how this will affect other search engines, etc., who get results from google (dogpile comes to mind).

Food for thought and, right now at least, it tastes pretty sh*tty!

:smokez:

I should get really angry about what Google are doing, but after a few days of SOPA, PIPA and Megaupload bombardments, I'm seriously fed-up and disgusted with the lot of them.

... for pity sakes Google and all you mighty powers that be .... we don't need you, piss off and leave our fucking Internet alone, this is ours damnitall ... not yours. :grin:

One may not be able to opt out of Google but we can change search engines. I don't mean to spam but https://ixquick.com/eng/is, I believe, a viable alternative and it uses https. I use it now over Google and iGoogle.

It really is outrageous. I am fed up with both Google and Facebook, tbh. I am considering leaving FB altogether, canceling my Google+, and deleting my gmail accounts. I never made the permanent switch to Chrome, so, I'm still in bed with FF. :eek:

I am going to check out that search engine.

I guess Google just forgot..."without us they are nothing". WE made Google what it is today. "We the people". As producedan said,we can just go to Ixquick. Ixquick looks just the the old google did before they added the ugly black bar. And Google can bite my butt.
