[news.com.au] Fears Google Hire could allow employers to see your entire search history - Page 2

post #11 of 73
Sad. Sorry, Google doesn't have my search history. I don't use Chrome, and don't sign into Google unless I have to for something. I also don't stay signed in.

And now, everyone knows why. Saw this coming years ago.

And my friends said I was weird and paranoid for never linking my gmail account to anything real. Sadly, I will probably still use google after this mad.gif

What about landlords, cops or the crazy angry lady two houses down ? Can you just make up some account and pay a fee for access? Been using Bing since it came out myself, but I might have used google a bit here and there.

You saw what coming?

Because this isn't actually a thing, you just got duped by a questionably worded click bait article.

The only news here is that Google have a LinkedIn competitor in beta, there is no indication it shares inappropriate data with employers and quite frankly it would be an awful business decision for it to.

I recently saw that iOS added Duck Duck Go to the search provider list, I've been using it for a few weeks now with no complaints (except that it doesn't have a tab for browsing images).

I can only assume they did it just to spite Google, but as they say, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Good thing I never use my real name with my gmail account, and it is not used for any personal accounts. I use my Protonmail encrypted in Switzerland for all my main stuff.

Suck it Google, suck it good. smile.gif

Also, M$ can suck it for breaking my Nvidia drivers with Creators update.

Long live the Swizz Alps and bitcoin! band.gif

This will never see the light of day as it's rumoured in the article. I don't think that they're that inept. However, I do wonder how they can make this service relevant when their social network attempt essentially failed to take off. Oh, they sure do have a value add, but it's a no-go territory. The day they decide to explore it, it's game over for them. Something about "not being evil".

At that point they should shift their business focus to selling cans of worms.

I think this is overblown. There's no way in hell that Google will allow personal data to leak to employers. They don't even do that for the government without paperwork and a warrant.

This is the origin of the article:

Google is working on a tool for managing job applicants

Then The Sun, a terrible tabloid newspaper, decided to run with the headline "Google creates jobsite Google Hire, but does that mean employers will be able to snoop on your grubby digital history?".

Posed as a question because they know it has no basis, but designed to generate clicks. It's the definition of clickbait, so naturally half of this website jump on it without reading the article.

"Google Hire could allow"

Which part of that you do not understand exactly? Even the source itself does not say they WILL do it but they sure as hell have the means to do that once they found a loophole in some privacy law and if it makes them money. Even more, they already do make money on selling search data to customers so which makes you so sure that they would not do this?

Though I agree that the sun is a joke of a publish to begin with.
