The Google Cookie

Google Cookie

Have you ever carefully thought about your Google cookie? It can perpetually keep information about:

  • Your address/es
  • When you are logged on if you Google frequently enough
  • What you search the Web for
  • Which sites you enter (from SERP‘s)

That is an excess of information, so where has privacy gone? I used to block the Google Cookie, but it resulted in inconveniences when using AdSense. The blocking was matter of principle; there was nothing particular to disguise.

Google co-founder was once asked about the information bound to each cookie identifier. The answer is still unknown. Microsoft are doing something evil by sharing the information listed above across their empire (see related item).
