What has been shocking for most users who prefer remaining private and more so their data, is that Google did not ask users before switching on to this policy and making it their standard one. Hence, the information is bound to be shared across all of Google’s various service tools. On the matter, Alma Whitten, who is Google’s director or privacy, product and engineering said:
“We aren’t collecting any new or additional information about users. We won’t be selling your personal data. And we will continue to employ industry-leading security to keep your information safe.”
Google has been facing challenges into keeping users’ personal data safe from other third-parties who might be interested in them for different reasons. Even the governments have been asking Google to share users’ data for helping into solving crimes of serious nature. To most of it Google has complied, and to some of the governments’ demands, it has straight-forwardly denied.
