Google was changed its privacy policy Thursday, a move that is causing a lot of anxiety among Internet activists and some users.
The changes in effect allow the world’s biggest Internet Company to gather information about its visitors across all its products, services and websites and store them in one place. The concept, The Google says, is to make a complete symbol of its user so it can provide more customized solutions.
“In short, we’ll treat you as a single user across all our products, which will mean a simpler, more intuitive Google experience,” the company wrote in a Jan. 24 blog post that announced the changes.

The changes won’t be recognizable instantly, and Google sites and solutions will operate like they always have. But privacy advocates are troubled that with the policy modifications, Google will know more about who you are, who you talk to, what you watch, where you go, and maybe most disturbingly .
Some few tips you can take to keep Google from painting too exact a portrait of your online ways.
a>. Don’t log in to a Google account when you go online. Google’s privacy changes mostly affect people who have a Google account such as Gmail or Google+. But even if you do have a Google account, you can still use plenty of Google’s services, with YouTube, Search and Maps, without logging in first.
b>. Use additional search engine. If you don’t like the fact that Google is keeping tabs on what you are searching for, you can constantly try another search.
c>. Turn off the setting that permits Google to record your search history. Google has made it very easy to silence, control or delete your search history via http://www.google.com/history. If you clear your search history, your search positions no longer will be associated with your account but still may be associated with your browser for up to 18 months, according to a Google spokeswoman.
d>. Take your Google data and head for the hills. In the spirit of “being big without being evil,” Google produced the Data Liberation Front, a website that clarifies individuals how to export data from some key Google platforms like Google Docs and Gmail so you can exit Google without leaving all your treasured documents and emails behind.
