After months of stalling, Google finally revealed how much personal data they collect in Chrome and the Google app. No wonder they wanted to hide it.

Spying on users has nothing to do with building a great web browser or search engine. We would know (our app is both in one).

@duckduckgo @bunni It was crazy. I don't use any google apps anyways, not just for privacy, because google's software is simply poorly made and designed.

Anyways they put off updating for MONTHS on some of their stuff after the privacy iOS update. What we are seeing in this image is Google's "toned down" more privacy oriented update.

Which is insane, meaning what was running before was basically a virus.

@duckduckgo Oh yeah. Very clear to see why Google fights Apple so hard about privacy. Should be obvious who are the bad guys in this situation lol.

@duckduckgo I was actually surprised to read "Google finally revealed how much personal data they collect", until I saw that it wasn't google that revealed it but Apple through their iOS privacy update thingy.

@duckduckgo That image was a bit tricky to read, because they don't do a 'nothing' value.

Youtube has a no-cookie version of its video embeds, which you can use if you want to spare your users from excessive cookie placement. It was interesting to see how much data Youtube collects through its no-cookies embed, though.


I looked at #chromium/#chrome shared sourcefiles some months ago and on UMA+UKM systems there.
The chrome part was kind of in the plain sight this whole time, nothing to actually reveal.
