Google Betrays User Privacy By Releasing Location Data Under Auspices of Virus Fight

Now this is scary…

Individual responsibility is dying a quick and painful death in our modern, mad society, and behemoth data mining companies such as Google are the ones who are twisting the knife.

Where we used to be self sufficient on account of necessity, we are now lost without our bionic companions.  You know, the ones that fit right into our pockets and tell us how much we’ve exercised, what time the bar closes, and where to make that left turn.  And while all of this newfound convenience is truly awe-inspiring, the speed at which technology has grown is only sustained by money…lots and lots of money.

That money is largely derived from your data; how active you are, how you decide where to grab a drink, and how you got to the bar in the first place.  You see, this is the sort of information that advertisers thrive on.  They can use this data to better target you, and people like you, in order to separate you from portions of your paycheck.

Alphabet’s Google division has on Thursday published data for 131 countries that shows whether people are obeying self-isolating and quarantine rules.

The ‘Community Mobility Reports’ from the search engine giant showed whether visits to shops, parks and workplaces dropped in March, Reuters reported.

March is when many countries around the world brought in their lock-down rules, and readers can click here to see the Google reports on their particular country.

This sort of monitoring is the cost of admission when it comes to using Google’s products, but this widespread dissemination of this data is sure to have privacy advocates shouting from the rooftops.
