I have to pass this one along.
In addition to there being no way to turn off Google ads tracking, there’s also no way to “clearly see what information is collected” by Google, as Pichai claimed. Google often points to the “Web & App Activity” list, but that’s just a summary of products you’ve interacted with lately. It’s not the massive profile Google builds for every user as they move across the web, regardless of account settings or login state. There’s no way to view that.
Hochman’s testimony said he found Google’s privacy switch “counterintuitive” and “frankly, kind of Orwellian, it is just very strange that you have a privacy switch that when you flip it, it just means we don’t tell you that we’re spying on you.”
