Well would you look at that – day one of the new General Data Protection Regulation and BOOM, Google gets its first complaint.

It’s hardly surprising – we all know that Google’s been watching us for years, following us around the web and showing us targeted advertising.

For some people, it’s no big deal, and for others, it feels like a massive invasion of privacy.

Where do you stand on it?

I guess the big issue for lots of us is that Google is so ingrained into the fabric of our lives that it can be really hard to extricate ourselves from it.

I mean, where else would you find the number for your local takeaway?

Maybe you’re uncomfortable with the way Google uses your data, maybe you’re not, but if you fancy giving Google less information about you and your browsing behaviour, it’s worth pointing out that there is an alternative.

DuckDuckGo is ‘the search engine that doesn’t track you’.

They don’t believe that your data should be monetised, which is why they provide a browser plugin that:

  • Blocks advertising trackers
  • Keeps your search history private
  • Allows you to take control of your personal data

Click HERE and give it a go – you never know, you might like it.
