Google’s New Policy Allows It To Track You Like Never Before (But Here’s How To Fix It)

New Gmail users automatically agree to the policy when they sign up, while old Gmail users must opt-in.

The controversy surrounds Google’s advertising service, DoubleClick, which allows companies to target customers with ads on websites (through the use of cookies).

The old policy stated that “We will not combine DoubleClick cookie information with personally identifiable information unless we have your opt-in consent.” That line is no longer in the privacy policy. A new sentence has been added that reads: “Depending on your account settings, your activity on other sites and apps may be associated with your personal information in order to improve Google’s services and the ads delivered by Google.”

The change means you might see an add on ESPN.com for something you wrote about in Gmail.

The good news: It is easy to opt out. Here is how to do it:

1. Go to Google’s read this.

2. Click on Mange Your Google Activity.

3. Click on Go to Activity Controls.

4. Uncheck the box next to “Include Chrome browsing history and activity from websites and apps that use Google services.”

6. At the same link, you also can prevent Google from tracking your Location, your YouTube viewing history and your browsing history.
