|Why Google Is So Wicked (pictures Attached) by SchoolGate: 8:01am On May 31, 2021|
I have just been informed by my intelligent team that nairaland owner (name withheld) frequently buys my search history from Google.
Either they are giving him for free or he is working for them.
But why should people know your search history which is supposed to be private?
99.99% people are not aware that Google do sell their search history
When you use Google to search for something, the top men of the earth are curious to know what you are searching for, hence the reason they buy your search history.
Due to their technological prowess it is technically impossible to browse Google anonymously.
As the best web developer from Nigeria I am committed to exploit ways in which we can use Google anonymously

Not to distract my September launch, I will adopt the SAS method (start and stop) to solve this problem.

This is the way I will be looking at Google when I finally browse their website anonymously

They don't keep your search history like Google

It's not a secret, neither is it a crime
If you work online, whether as a blogger or...you'll need these data. They'll help you know what to write and what people are really interested in

This one thinks he's unravelling a great mystery.
You can visit your activity tab and see every link and searches you have ever made since your Gmail account was created. You can delete or keep them if you want.
And no, nairaland does not buy search history from Google. And any creator that buys search history from Google for marketing purposes, it can never connect the dots or pinpoint any query to you. They only get a large chunk of data that is completely anonymous devoid of any personalization.
So they are actually getting something but one that cannot be traced to you. So wetin be all this nonsense?
And if you want to browse anonymously, then get a new device, don't log into your Gmail account. That way you browse anonymously or better still use duckduckgo search engine. Even that does not take care of your 'privacy'
And no, You don't have a team

Premiumwriter2:Shut your fucking mouth there. If you talk any further nonsense I will put your real picture here so that people can see and take note of you.
1. Modern devices especially android phones requires a Google account to function. You have to compulsorily login to your account before you can utilize most functions on your phone e.g play store.
2. By observation I have noticed you do follow my search history on Google.
3. Most of those other search engines are still connected and owned by Google (even as they claim to be different). So long as you are surfing with the same IP address they can still track your search history and send to the central database.
4. They even keep track of people's location history so they can predict your movement.
5. Given a large sum of money Google is always ready to disclose these information about a specific individual to the highest bidder.
6. They do sell people's information e.g search history and location history

You can go ahead and reveal my pictures before you start running your mouth like person wey get diarrhoea.
You do not have to compulsorily log into a Google account to use android devices. It is only compulsory when you want to use Google products like play store, Gmail and youtube.
Otherwise, android itself is free to use. And were you expecting to use the playstore without signing up? Do you know how bad the service will be if it brings up random apps because it cannot predict what you want?
Do you know how aweful YouTube will be if its not intelligent enough to use your previous likes to suggest what you'll like to watch?
The data Google get most times is to make the place better for users. And if it sells this data, it does so in such a way that it cannot be tied individually to a user.
The buyer of the data only get a vague idea of the general population, what they like, dislike and the country or state of residence but will never get personal information like house address, phone numbers, username, or even your Gmail address or ID.
Those are considered private information and only used to personalize your product.
I laugh when you say other search engines are owned by Google or connected to it.
Clearly, you've just assimilated some conspiracy bullsh*t from a sh*tty website and is here regurgitating it for others.
And lastly, take a breather sir. You are not that important for anyone to want to know your personal information, so much thar they will pay billions to get it.
That is why when it comes to selling the kind of data that Google sells to corporations, it's never personalized because that will only put in a lot of useless information (yes, in data collection, your Name, house addresses, phone numbers and all other personal things are useless and do not serve any real market value... Have you seen anyone buying database of names before?)
Please go and read. Simply because Google sells data doesn't mean it breaches your privacy.
All tech giant sells data. But they never sell personalized data.
And what's the fuse if I buy a database on Nigeria related to people who are looking for solutions to barrenness? As far as I do not know them personally, I have not harmed them in any way. Rather I have gotten a data to help structure my market and product instead of wasting resources and making guess works.
Please go and read.
P. S post the pictures.
It seems you go about telling everyone you'll post their pictures
Didn't know I was talking with a pathetic loser

TalkTalkTwins:he's a newbie so he thinks he's talking something fundamental.
Data collection and selling is the biggest goldmine on the internet. So long as the providers of the data are anonymous when you sell it, it is completely legal.
It's just like nairaland here, users are anonymous but you can still collect data to know what people are looking for and how you can meet this need.
|Re: Why Google Is So Wicked (pictures Attached) by aperture11: 3:07pm On May 31, 2021|
Dude is a newbie so he is allowed to be fascinated.
It is called anonymised data, and doesn't hold any PII (Personally Identifiable information) about the individual.

Premiumwriter2:ignore that kid.
He's a sick fellow. He was once arrested here on nairaland for character defamation, the person even pitied him and bailed him with his own money, the kid's picture was uploaded here and I think he shouldn't be more than 18 years

My dear he goat, your destructive ways of life made you already know how much you've lost would have gained from me your boss now.
To just develop a nice nairaland script with all features I wanted with just 300k....
Which would have been your cup of tea.
I still wanted to give you a last chance but your blocked gay head still added more misfortunes for you

TalkTalkTwins:YEAH, you are right... Google have their TERMS and CONDITIONS, but most people can't read it through, because of its length.
