World famous ignorer of privacy, Google, will give you a little privacy back. This is a good thing. They have a long way to be Apple tier but at least they are trying.

Now if only they would stop reporting people's search histories for money.

Not out of any new concern for user privacy it seems. It's only to attract enterprise customers to their G Suite cloud services which will probably be more profitable than the ad revenue from targeted ads from email anyway.

No reason not to, they'll still show free users ads but it will be based on other information they have like search and YouTube history.

I dont really believe this. I bet they are just saying they will limit their spying.

Google literally makes its money by selling customized and personalized ads. I dont see them throwing their business plan away.

Please don't. That's just my Mavic Pro following you. It's not a big deal.

it's Google! one of the 4 horsemen of the tech industry-- your privacy is their #1 priority!

i'm sure if you notice when the government or police needs information it's either will be provided by Facebook, Google or similar companies. People are putting too much personal information on the net now a day.

Personally, i don't want to know what you are doing every 10 minutes via Facebook posts after posts!!

the law will never stand in the way of the great good.
i have no illusions we are living in a big brother state right now.
the power is just too tempting, and too easy to justify with 'terrorism'.
