This is how Google is spying on everything you do


Predicting your behavior with an absolute
accuracy has been Google’s quest for two decades. If they can do that, they can generate endless
stream of money from advertisers and anyone else who is willing to pay for exploiting
such power. How much are they able to follow you across
the Internet? Well, the reality is that Google’s surveillance
has no limits. They track literally everything you do and
everywhere you go. And not just on the Internet, but even in
real life. This how Google manages to follow your every
step. In China, Google has been secretly developing
a covert version of Google search in order to enter the vast Chinese market. At the request of the Chinese government,
Google will link users’ mobile phone numbers to the search terms they’ve used. This is to help the government to crackdown
on dissidents and activists, and become more efficient overall at censoring the Internet. This was revealed just last month and it may
come as a shock to Western audience, that Google would rather choose to be implicit
in human rights abuse with the Chinese government, than be principled and lose profit. But Google has been doing this in Western
democracies for ages. Whenever you search for something, Google
will create a server log that will remember your browser and OS configuration, IP address
and a unique cookie planted on your device by Google. The link you click on from the results is
logged and Google will keep a record of the websites you visit from there. If you don’t delete this cookie, it will
expire after 30 years, essentially logging your entire digital presence. From there, it’s trivially easy for Google
to link your search history to your phone number. They either have your number from your phone,
or any other Google service you signed up for, like Gmail, YouTube, or Google Play. If they can’t get your number from their
services, Google partnered with Facebook, Twitter and other tech platforms to exchange
that information with them. If that doesn’t work, Google turns to its
100,000s of third-party partners and data brokers like Acxiom to buy your phone number
from offline databases. Thanks to Ed Snowden, we know that all Google
servers are tapped by intelligence agencies in the US and other Five eyes countries, which
include UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The US National Security Agency then keeps
a copy of your search history tied back to your phone number forever in their data centers. Google also worked with Pentagon to develop
artificial intelligence technology for US military drones. The United States is currently engaged in
military interventions in eight countries without approval from the United Nations,
and often times causes massive civilian casualties from drone strikes. Many Google employees resigned in protest, claiming Google shouldn’t engage in the business of war. Google surveillance has dramatic real life
implications on human rights whether it’s in China or the US. It’s a political power that no politician
can resist. If you signed up for Gmail, you didn’t just
give up your phone number, but some precious information that are unique to your biology. Ever since Gmail came to existence, Google
has been actively scanning your emails for keywords to expose you to more ads in your
inbox. But Google also used your private emails to
study your writing style and the way you type. Similar to how you walk is unique to your
person, the way you hit keys on your keyboard and your writing style also belong to you
only. This allows Google to identify you across
your whole Internet presence, even if you create pseudonymous accounts on public forums
like Reddit. In 2017, Google promised to stop active scanning
of Gmail messages, but it was revealed that Google continues to let third-party app developers
that use Gmail to scan users private emails. It would often be the case that employees
of Google and its partners ended up manually reading your emails for further unspecified
purposes, but mostly for security, app development, and advertising. These third parties are even allowed to further
share your emails to their partners, and thus multiplying the amount of copies. If you ever deleted your email or even your
entire Gmail account, Google visually fulfills your request, but residual copies are kept
in their offline backup systems indefinitely. Google doesn’t go after the third-party
developers to delete their copies of your emails. Your private emails thus remain copied and
stored in data centers across the globe with unknown security and no oversight. Google uses your browsing history not only
to target you with ads, but to identify you as well. Google only needs snippets of your browsing
record to be able to determine identities of users on the web. Google tracks your browsing history through
AdSense, DoubleClick and various other advertising and tracking scripts that belong to the company. Even Google+ share plugins on websites are
used to track users even if they logged off or never used Google+, similar to how Facebook
tracks browsing history through like and share plugins. Where cookies don’t work, Google uses your
unique ID number that is assigned to every android device by default. This ID is continuously followed and cross-referenced
with the rest of your record to constantly keep it up to date across all platforms and
devices. If these policies aren’t aggressive enough,
Google purchases the remaining browsing records from data brokers, internet service providers,
internet exchange points or content delivery networks. Google really wants to know where you go. So much so that it keeps tracking your location
even if you tell it not to. First time Google was caught tracking users
location on their Android phones and tablets was through triangulation of nearby cell towers
servicing users’ devices. This information was collected even when users
turned off location services, never inserted a SIM card in their phone, or even after factory
reset. There was no way for users to opt out. Google said this collection was put in place
to improve message delivery, which wasn’t really clear how that could work. Nonetheless, Google promised to turn this
feature off and stop collecting location data for users who turn off location services. That was a lie. Even with location history turned off, Google
can use any app activity to keep a minute-by-minute record of your location but you wouldn’t
have any visual way to find out about it. To confuse users Google hid the option to
turn off this collection under “Web and App Activity” settings, where this kind
of collection would not be expected by an average user. This year is a big milestone for Google. 40% of global ad spending is expected to take
place online, outspending TV advertising by $40 billion. Google achieved dominance in digital advertising
thanks to their focus, commitment and sheer will. The will to know about every single step you
make. Google is able to attract advertisers thanks
to their ability to profile records of your entire activity on the web. But this time, the corporate behemoth is able
to track what you buy even in physical stores. Google partnered with MasterCard and presumably
other credit card companies to gain access to roughly 70% of credit and debit card transactions
in the US. These data exchange hands aggregated and in
encrypted form. But that’s just a public relation talking
point. Google can verifiably deanonymize this data
with its massive pool of personal information it holds on their users. By constantly tracking users location, Google
can correlate when users saw an online ad and walked into a store to buy it, almost
entirely irrespective of how much time has passed between the two events. Digital profiles in Google’s databases contain
very detailed information about users likes, preferences, interests and private thoughts. The search giant is able to retrospectively
compare these profiles with the aggregated databases of offline purchases to identify
individual purchasing histories. Google tracks offline purchases in order to
prove advertisers when online ads make impressions that translate into physical transactions. Digital advertising is still a relatively
new platform compared to television. By tracking users offline purchases, Google
can persuade the advertising industry that they can pinpoint marketing campaigns with
surgical accuracy. I only mentioned tracking that we know of. There might be numerous trade secrets, undisclosed
agreements, and technologies developed by Google to win the race to get inside people’s
minds. Google’s presence is literally everywhere
and it wants to play god without permission. But it’s possible to protect yourself. By avoiding Google services and replacing
them with alternatives whenever possible, you can significantly reduce Google’s power
in your life. Switch to ProtonMail, start using Firefox,
search with DuckDuckGo and install uBlock origin to block much of Google’s tracking
machinery. If you want to become more advanced at protecting
yourself from Google, you can watch my tutorials on some essential tools that will help you
regain control of your digital self. Share this video so that more people can learn
about Google’s powers and subscribe if you are new to this channel. And remember to stay vigilant.

  • I love google.. Spy as much as you like <3 Wanna see me, when I shit, piss, randomly have the occasional accident too? C'mon, you can't have one side but not the other…

  • Pre-crime is real You Must ALL Stop This it will be hooked up to the AI. They've been using this for 8 years software called pred Pol they've been reading brain algorithms the police in major cities like Atlanta Georgia California state as well but that congress bill for this is three-six th Bill HR 838 this is to give all the states permission for the police to read brain algorithms on everyone. This is pre-crime Carrot they're also using this with threat assessment which is psychological evaluation which will give them permission to monitor you and all your thoughts emotions as well as label Baker Act this is for the police to do all these things it will be added with facial recognition Iris scan DNA please stop this

  • Nothing on this planet is MORE DANGEROUS to our Freedom than Google. Not Global Warming, nor Nuclear Weapons. We are barley hanging on to our freedom right now.The Influence of the Propaganda Press and Citizens addicted to phones and internet has caused us to be tame and unable to protect ourselves. Our Politicians are TERRIFIED of Google. We have about 10 years at the most to turn the Google monopoly around. Otherwise we are lost.

  • Eye phone..You tube
    Only way to attempt to go back to privacy is to not use Wi-Fi smartphone computers and all modern technology. Entire world is addicted to the system.

  • All social media, all of them are sharing buying and selling your personal emails, pictures, watching you in your phone, tablet or computer, keeping your credit card info and passwords …EVERYTHING PERSONAL PEOPLE…it’s time

  • We were made from cells, they say. There is no mind, they say. Earth is round, they say. Google is spying on us and we can’t do anything about it…

  • I literally searched up something about my voice on google 10 secs later I get a video about some animated cartoon about a grown man with a weird voice

  • Ads influence me alright, I go out of my way to ensure any major purchases I make don't go to the annoying pain in the ass mandatory advertisors there subsideries or any companies related too them, it's actually enjoyable.

  • We(the people) need to use technology to monitor the government and the corporations, not them, tracking and monitoring us.
    We can play the same game.
    The meek will inherit the earth.
    The King of the people.
    I AM THE PARAKLETOS

  • I write privately on Messenger about going to Armenia, and ten minutes later I have an add on YouTube for travels to Armenia. What is the change?
    I go in a remote country without internet on my phone, without even a SIM card, still I can see where I am on Google Maps.
    Despite this I am somewhat offended by how little Google knows about me. The adds directed to me are such a miss.

  • It is time to prohibit private entities from getting unfettered access to our personal information. It is time to ban all forms of private surveillance. No private entity is ever entitled to the level of power which has been usurped by Google and other private big data companies.

  • This video is actually Google you see, Satan has to tell you what he's gonna do. If you who are God in you doesn't complain or resist him, then by aquieasing he can keep doing it.

  • I have zigzagged since 1993. Saw the problems back then. NEVER use your real info on internet. I don't trust corporate liars or marketing. They have yet to predict what I want nor ever give appropriate ads, which I ignore. Who needs all that crap? I keep my privacy well guarded. If people were more suspicious of corporations they would anticipate and work around them. It would stunt their greedy profits quickly.

  • They're not just predicting it they are real time watching…I was jamming on my Harmonica last night and nek fing harp video's turned up on my page….I wonder if they are happy or disappointed I don't watch porn anymore or even that I'm celibate…It's like this for me if society say's to do this I do the opposite…now they are deleting my comment's because sometimes the truth I speak is too much for them…….maybe I'll be deleted next….If so good…I don't want to be part of this Paedophile Controlled society anymore…and just because I said this they will probably make me live for 200 year's now lol yep I also talk lot's of shyte too.

  • At first they probably thought I was on their team because of my name but they will probably get their baby the terrorists ISIS to copyright it lol…Snowden told us nothing he's theirs just like Assange and Manning. Echelon has been around longer and as for my typing style it varies..and my email's are full of rubbish.

  • Actually I would Want Google to Follow Me If I were In The Middle Of The Sahara But Not In my Own House. thanks Alphabet Inc. And I wouldn't Be Suprised If Google Makes A Chip for the government TO Follow Us Were Ever we go and put it below our skin like dogs Google Please Stop You Totaltarian Company also Susan Should be ALOT Less $ $ Eyes And Censorship on Youtube Is Way To Bad They Demonitize "Everything A Song That Has Blood,Glorification Of Gangs And Swears" Youtube Yeah thats Fine 'A Video with a curse word Youtube Thats BAD

  • 4:40 that sounds fucking illegal. How is that possible? They have stolen our emails and private life then? That is highly illegal. I cant belive that.

  • Back in 1969 I was in 6th grade and my teacher told us kids all about this was going to happen. He stressed that it was important to have good grades as it would stay on our records. His exact words were "those with good grades will be able to spy on other people because they'll have the access." It went in one ear and out the other. I continued to be the class clown trying to get a laugh out of my classmates…bad grades included.
    It's not only Google and Company that is spying. Anybody with a creepy heart, mind and access to a given database can investigate people at will. Sometimes they're caught and often times they are off the radar because they control the safeguards to that degree. The whole world is one great big liar. A liar that knows how to smile and look cool, too.

  • This video deserves more view by all google fans fans and all Google employees. But the point that targeting ads with perfect accuracy sounds right to me

  • now you say all this using Google YouTube! so you already made all of us that have seen your video a target for google!? hahaha

  • Google does actually track everything you type. I keep saying im lesbian on roblox and and after that all i see on youtube is lesbian episode ads. Smh

  • All these dumbasses that use google home & ask google. If you go to that account & dig deep you can playback all the ask google audio

  • It's inevitable that you are going to be spied upon. For many countries Big Brother is already here.
    After 9/11 all hopes of having any privacy have been lost forever with George Bush jnr Patriot act, how else can you stop potential threats from terrorism without monitoring peoples telecommunication habits, reading their emails and seeing where they go, who they visit.
    The NSA used some software called 'ThinThread' which needed about 9 people to run. It worked by looking at the metadata in a communication which could then be checked and cross checked, it was efficient. Then the NSA upgraded to 'TrailBlazer' which needed 500 people to run and it monitored everything. This completely swamped the NSA and they have been scrambling against the tide ever since.
    After the Twin Towers came crashing down the data that was fed into TrailBlazer was now fed into ThinThread and withing a short time it highlighted the plane hyjackers of the United flights, so why had they replaced ThinThread? Because they are greedy for intel, any intel because it could be significant.

    There are more benefits to having smart stuff than there are against it, thats for sure, we all like to use it so therefore you have to become a slave, drink the cool aid and sign up to benefit. The benefits outweigh the negatives and therefore we will get it, tough shit.
    Just type in wigle net and look at the global map of wireless hotspots, it's stunning how many dots there are, the first one was mapped in 2012.
    In China the spying is much more intrusive. Even worse are those private individuals who benefit from sneaking on their friends and neighbours, a snitch, reporting bad behaviour, a parking violation, noisy pets or rude people and getting a free holiday or money off your shopping as a reward.
    Founded in 1950, headquarters in east Berlin the STASI was a state run security service and in 1989 they had over 91,000 employee's and millions of snitch's ready to dob in anybody for money.
    I wonder how many employee's work for the Chinese state security and all their side concerns and businesses?

  • I just do not understand why. Everyone keeps telling me they are. I just do not know why. "OK google" Tell me why you need all this information about me. Am I really that interesting.

  • So now i realized why they no longer sell smarthphones with removable batteries. So you no longer be able to power off the device completely.

  • I miss nokia. They are better dudes than google. Thanks to the fall of nokia google take the smarthphones market. Google = Hit……tler and Nokia God.

  • How should I explain to someone in a country like Afganistan that privacy matters where their is very low transaction through internet or bank cards

  • your content is quite interesting. Just stumbled across it if you hours ago. Keep it up. Spread the word that online privacy does matter and everyone who uses the Internet should not be oblivious but aware that it is.

  • Halarious how youtube is part of google, yet not only did this video get recommended to me, but also i got a duck duck go ad afterwards stating that google is creepy 😂🤷

  • I love how google completely doesn't understand me. I'm sort of stuck between 2 completely different cultures, mixing up languages and interests. this gave me an interrest profile which no company here wants to advertise to, basically my profile doesn't exist on this side of the globe (it does on the other side, when using a vpn suddenly i get interresting ads). the endresult is basically no ads on youtube apart from the occasional sponsored recommendation video which completely contradicts my interrest.

  • Hey google 🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕👉👌👉👌👉👌👉👌👉👌👉👌👉👌🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕google my butthole it’s full of cookies
