Bit of a paranoid post tbh, seems this "feature" is disabled by default anyway.
It was enabled on my google account. I don't remember ever enabling it in the settings. I'm actually not really that much of a privacy nut apart from with my personal information. But i thought other members on here might be interested in being able to disable it.
Seriously if your worried about your privacy you shouldnt be on the internet at all.
I've been curious about this. I personally do not have a google account as I just don't see the need for one. If I don't have a account, do I need to worry about this?
I just started using Ghostery for Firefox. Basically blocks all trackers. That is my answer to Google's new policy.
Nope, but all google accounts are being grouped together. 1 account for all of googles services.
Removing all Web History does not help. Only a full format disks excludes espionage Google.
Thanks, I hadn't heard of Ghostery before. Installed and running now: amazing how much sh!t it's found...
This is an excellent program. Before that I used BetterPrivacy.
Yeah it was a bit of an eye opener. I mean I have always used NoScript and of course that always catches Google Analytics but seems there is plenty more going on...
You are a smarty person, eh? If you don't care, keep your thoughts inside! Some people try to keep their privacy even under these circumstances. In conclusion, congrats to the OP.
Another thanks for the ghostery tip.
Also, it seems my settings were already on "Paused" and I know I have not played with those settings before. It did though, have some searches of mine recorded.
Yeah you can "White list" sites your not bothered by. It does mess with Battlelog for example(no surprise there it's full-o-trackers)
OMG but what does it say the new policy??? wil they store my history even if I deleted it?
Really? This is a discussion board, for all you know TPU could be turning on your webcam at night when your sleeping. I guess Privacy only matters to those who have something to hide, I personally dont care that google is changing the policy,but i live in the USA where we have millions of drones in the skies watching what we do.
After following your instructions(not that much was in my history apparently) I just deleted my google account as a whole.
Trying to use google and their services as little as possible.
Lol I'm starting to not like Google to bad I have over 2 Gmail accounts. Oh well.
Thanks for the Ghostery installing now.
EDIT:!! Holy cow ! I just found out that one of my Gmail's has been keeping my history since 2009! Just paused and deleted everything.
"I guess Privacy only matters to those who have something to hide."
It's this ideal that will complete the fascist takeover of the US. It's almost there now.
It's deactivated on mine per default. Maybe it's different from country to country?
