Stop Google From Knowing Too Much About You

Posted By on Wed, Feb 22, 2012 at 5:21 PM

Maybe you're ok with Google combining all the information its gathered about you into one database of knowledge that certainly won't be used to take over the world, but certainly will be used for goodness and for the benefit of humanity. Maybe you don't have weird items in your Google web search history. Maybe you haven't looked up "Cleveland Steamer" once or twice.

However, if you'd like to perhaps make it slightly harder for Google to assemble a genetically assembled copy of your brain in a lab somewhere, you might want to follow the instructions put together by the Electronic Frontier Foundation ahead of Google's new privacy rules kicking in on March 1st.
