What information does Google have about you?
Did you know that when you search on Google, keep your search history forever? That means they know every search you have made on Google. He alone is very scary, but it is the shallow end of the very deep pool of data that he attempts to collect on people.
Most people do not realize that even if you do not use any Google products directly, they are trying to track as much as you can about them. Google trackers have been found to be 75% of the top million websites. This means that they are trying to track everywhere they go on the internet, trying to slow down their browsing history!Most people also do not know that Google runs most of the ads you see on the internet and in the app – do you know people who follow you everywhere? Yes, it’s Google too. They are not really a search company – they are a tracking company. They are tracking as much as possible for these troubled and infiltrated ads, in which you see them with the recording, where you saw them, if you clicked them, etc.
But this is not all …
If you use Google products:
If you use Google products, they try to track even more. In addition to tracking what you have searched for on Google (eg “funny rush”), Google also tracks every video you watched on YouTube. Many people do not really know that Google is YouTube; Now you know
What information does Google have about you?
And if you use Android (yes, Google also owns it), Google is usually tracking: everywhere you’ve been through Google Location Services. How often do you use your app, when you use them, where you use them, and whom you use them to chat with. (This is excessive by any measure.)
All of your text messages, which are contrary to iOS, are not encrypted by default. Your photos (even in some cases that you have removed) If you use Gmail, they will surely have all your emails too. If you use Google Calendar, they know all your schedules Here’s a pattern: For all Google products (Hangouts, Music, Drive, etc.), you can expect the same level of tracking; This is what they can track, they will.
Oh, and if you use Google Home, they also store a live recording of every order you make (or someone else) has ever asked your device! Yes, you’ve heard it right (mistake … they’ve heard it) – You can see all the recordings on your Google Activity page.
Essentially, if you allow them, they will track well, closer to what they do on the Internet. In fact, even if you ask them to stop tracking, Google is actually known for listening, for example with location history.
You become a product:
Why does Google want all your information anyway? Simple: As stated, Google is no longer a search company, they are a tracking company. From all these data points, Google allows you to create a beautiful strong profile about yourself. In some ways, by keeping close tabs of whatever you do, at least in some ways, you can find yourself better than you know.
And Google uses your personal profile not only on its search engine but also for selling ads on more than three million websites and apps. Each time you visit one of these sites or apps, Google is following you with hyper-targeted ads.
It’s exploitative. By allowing Google to collect all this information, you are allowing bidding on advertising to hundreds of thousands of advertisers based on your sensitive personal data. Apart from you, everyone involved is benefiting from your information. You are the product
It should not be in this way. For web-based businesses, it is entirely possible to be profitable without creating a product – since 2014, Dacadago has been beneficial without storing or sharing any personal information on people. You can read more about our business model here.
The myth of “nothing to hide”:
Some people can argue that they have “nothing to hide”, so they are not concerned with the amount of information collected and collected by Google, but this argument is fundamentally flawed for several reasons. Every person has the information they want to keep private: Do you close the door while going to a bathroom?
Privacy is about controlling your personal information. You do not want it in the hands of everyone, and of course, people do not want to take advantage of it without your consent or involvement. Apart from this, privacy is essential for democratic institutions such as voting and everyday situations such as medical care and financial transactions.
Without this, significant losses can occur. At a personal level, the lack of privacy puts you in the filter bubble, advertising, discrimination, fraud and identity theft. At a social level, it can be a reason for deep polarization and social manipulation, as unfortunately in recent years we have multiplied.
I hope you find your answer.
