It’s no secret what a vital role Google plays in our day-to-day lives. “Google it” has officially entered the cultural lexicon. The site’s intuitive search has changed the way we access information forever, and the majority of us rely on some Google app or product — be it Google Chrome, Google Search, Google Docs, Gmail, or another one of the tech giant’s offerings — for daily occurrences in both our work and personal lives.
But we also give up our privacy for the ease of use and personalization Google provides. In order to provide it and to sell advertisements (the company’s main source of revenue), the tech conglomerate collects a wealth of data on its users. The result is a comprehensive profile that encompasses everything from what you sound like to what you’re worried about to where you want to travel.
