Google New Privacy Law Kicks Off Today

Today March 1, Google is changing its Privacy Policy, a move that is raised concerns among Internet users and activists.



The new policy allows the world's largest Internet company to collect and gather information of all its users associated with all its products, services and websites (Google Chrome, Google Books, Google Wallet, Google+, Gmail, Youtube, etc.) and store them in one place. For this approach, Google says that the primary goal is to simplify and enhance the Google experience.




The new Google privacy just complicates the idea of protecting personal data. If you are concerned about this new development, then it might not be a bad idea to Delete Google Web History and help protect your account and computer.

  1. Go to the Google homepage and sign into your account.
  2. Click accounts settings (Dropped -down menu next to your name in the upper-right hand corner of your screen).
  3. Go to "Services section."
  4. Under "Services"  click "Go to Web History."
  5. Click "Remove all Web History."

Or Go for the Short-cut:

  1. Sign in to your Google Account from the homepage
  2. Go to www.google.com/history
  3. Click "Remove all Web History."

 
Completing this actions means Google will still continue gathering and storing information about your web history but all data would be anonymous. It will stop your web history from being recorded from this point on.



If you would want to avoid this anxiety again in the near future.. I found out some simple steps where we can keep Google from knowing accurately all our online habits. I think these make sense..


  1. Don't log in to a Google account when you go online. So that whatever you do and whatever you click within all Google's products and services will not be recorded and won't be linked to you forever.
  2. Use another search engine. If you don't like the fact that Google is keeping tabs on what you are looking for, you can always try another search engine when browsing the internet.
