In the second half of 2012, governments around the world made 21,389 information requests of Google on 33,634 users, with the U.S. topping the list with 8,476 requests, according to Googles latest Transparency Report, as reported by TechNewsWorld this week.
Privacy4Patriots, the publisher of an upcoming report on how to protect your privacy, wants to help people maintain their privacy on the Internet while using Google and other search engines.
Following are Privacy4Patriots 3 simple steps to avoid being tracked by Google:
- Turn off cookies in the browser. These little pieces of computer code are the primary method for tracking a users preferences.
- Tell Google not to track searches. Log into Google and then go to "history," where preferences can be set.
- Use an anonymous browser that wont track user actions or relate personal information to websites. The best is Tor Browser Bundle, which routes traffic through its network so that sites and advertisers cant track the user. This may slow down browsing a bit. Another is SRWARE Iron, the same software platform as Google Chrome without the Google bots tracking every move.
