Google’s New Privacy Policy- WHAT TO DO

1 Mar , 2012  

Today Google’s new privacy policy goes live and that means that they will know too much about you and they will dig even deeper into your life and use it for: advertising!. They will pool information not only from your Gmail account, but also from all the Google-operated services (Youtube, Google+, Picasa, Docs,…) so they can include ads based on your activity.


If you are a registered user of any of their products and if you want to stop this from happening, remove your Google web history from your Google account and also from your Youtube account.

  • Your Google web history will now be cleared and remain disabled until you decide to enable it again.

How to cover your YouTube search and viewing tracks:
