New Delhi: Among all the technology companies, including Facebook, Amazon, Apple, etc., it was found that Google collects the most user data. According to a recent study, Google tracks 39 different types of users’ private data. But there may be an app available soon to notify users every time Google collects their data. A new app that can notify users when their data has been tracked has been created by a developer named Bert Hubert.
“I made a very simple tool that makes some noise every time your computer sends data to Google,” Hubert wrote on Twitter while sharing the link to his app. The Dutch government’s official job site is displayed here. Already while typing the domain name, there is noise. There is a catch though. Since the app was built for Linux, it will not currently run on a Windows PC or smartphone.
According to 9to5Google, the Googleteller app uses IP addresses provided by Google. Therefore, Google Teller will sound an alarm to let you know that your data is being shared with Google when it notices that your system is connected to any of these IP addresses.
According to a recent study by StockApps.com, Google collects the most user data from all tech apps, including Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Twitter, and others. The majority of people lack the patience or time to read the lengthy privacy policies of every website they visit. Furthermore, not every user is likely to have enough legal knowledge to understand privacy policies, according to a StockApps.com researcher. The researcher went on to say that Google harvests all the data it collects because it relies on it for its entire business model.
It was discovered that Apple is the only technology company that stores only the data required to keep user accounts active. This is because, unlike Facebook, Google and Twitter, it does not depend on advertising revenue.
