New Privacy Policy From Google: What Does it Mean to Small Business?

Last Update: May 07, 2019

Earlier today I read a post by Tommo1968 and then found this bit of information that I thought I would share with the community.


"Google could unveil privacy tools that restrict the use of tracking cookies in its Chrome browser as soon as this week, The Wall Street Journal reports, citing anonymous sources. The new tools would give users more information about how they're tracked and allow options to limit cookies. The change likely signals a commitment to privacy, but also enhances Google's dominance in the ad market as other digital-marketing companies lose data-collecting power, The Journal says. Safari and Firefox added cookie tracking restrictions in 2017 and 2018."

Full Story can be found here: Wall Street Journal

I am not really sure how this will affect us in the long term and I can not really say that I am concerned either.

This could be partly to me not really understanding what the impact may be.

Anyway I thought I would share it with the community because it is trending today all over the internet.

What are your thoughts?

Thank you for stopping by

I switched over from Chrome to Firefox last summer when I found out that FF had a better policy as far as tracking goes for Privacy, which had nothing to do with small businesses. It was more for tracking online by the feared Government agencies such as the CIA.
I tried FF for a few months but then learned that Chrome had enacted almost the same thing so I switched back to Chrome. This was shortly after I joined WA.

If you are on Chrome you can check these settings out by going to Settings>Advanced>Privacy and Security> Go through all of them especially Sync/Google services and Site Settings.

I have no trust in the Wallstreet Journal or any other news agency.
