“Online Privacy is a Myth”
Having a difficult password and two way authentication may save your privacy from outside world. But what if your so called “privacy” is being monitored by the Big Giants themselves. Here by Giants I refer to the Google and all other popular social networking. Whenever you signup on an online networking site you agree to comply with their privacy policies.
In January 2012, Google introduced Unified Private Policy for its 60 different products. This means each and every information stored in these 60 products of Google will be sent to their servers and Google will analyse that data to show you ads based on your information. So what kind of data is included in this policy, lets have a look.
