What does Google know about you?


If you use Google, your privacy is compromised.  According to one source, here is the information that Google knows:
  • My name, gender and birth date
  • My personal cellphone numbers
  • My recent Google searches
  • The websites I've visited
  • That I turned on my bedroom lights last night
  • Exactly where I've been over the past several years
  • That I like American football, games, jazz, audio equipment, my favorite food & drink and more.
  • Where I work
  • Where I live
  • The YouTube videos I've watched and my YouTube searches
  • Every time I've used my voice to interact with Google Assistant (complete with recordings of my voice.)

Scary?  Here is a method of beating the system -- download, install and use another browser, which doesn't report back to Google:

Firefox
Opera
Chromium
Microsoft Edge

If you really want to beat the system, set DuckDuckGo as your default search engine.  I've been using it for the past 6 months.  For more information, see my post "Give DuckDuck a Go" from  23/3/18.  Email me for a copy.

The bottom line -- Google:  NO; Privacy:  Yes
