GOOGLE'S PRIVACY CHANGES- A SIMPLE INSTANT CURE FOR EVERYONE
In recent times we have been told that Google intends to change its policies regarding sharing information it collects on us.

Naturally this is an untennable and totally obnoxious concept to our valued privacy.

Even Microsoft according to a side heading on todays GLP's main page..the third of Feb 2012, have very publicly criticized Google's intentions, with a heavy advertising campaign, and rightfully so.

Fortunately there is a simple cure that will circumvent this intrusion, all you need to do is to copy and paste the following into your existing browsers "Start Page"
I use IE, so I can only vouch for its use there and it appears to be functioning perfectly.

Here it is...

[link to www.startpage.com (secure)]

If anyone can find fault or further endorse this Im certain everyone will appreciate the information being supplied.

That is true, but I can live with the tiny difference.
I'm using startpage since Google's self-destructive move.

I wonder how many users they already lost so far.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1329586


Theres always yahoo, but its a preference thing.

Then there is hotmail.

Thats two that I know of, but would love more options too.

Suggestions please!

Im currently with my ISP but I do use gmail for archiving important stuff just in case I have a major failure and over time that has happened a couple of times and Ive lost a lot of date that I caused me a bit of grief!

So, Im looking too.

Hell email services cant be THAT huge to set up a complete service on a small pay by the year basis, Id be happy to have something like that.

Something that is say just like say hotmail but guaranteed to be totally reliable, fast and unquestionably private, who wouldnt.

Could be a good business opportunity for the right person.

Maybe Jullian Asange might like to look at it, he had a pretty big set up and from what I hear his website has taken a pretty big hit.

ok,

well all that said and already with some good and valuable information.

I'm going to request that a pin for this information might be appropriate as it really does affect millions of internet users and also at a time when our freedoms and privacy are being so overtly attacked from multiple directions and interests.

This just seems to be an important solution for the average Joe and Jill to avoid his or her private information being splattered everywhere, so please endorse my request to have this pinned, so that more people can have an opporunity to learn that they have alternatives and that we are not hostage to gigantic meglamaniac dollar driven faceless companies.

Same here - only use Google when Bing doesn't get what I need.

Going to unload all Google apps off the android at the end of the month (Android of course has to stay, but all otheer Google apps are going bye-bye)

They dicked with it last year, and now every search for product churns out endless eBay referrer links.

Too big to fail? I don't think so. Google can easily be replaced by a better search engine. You can really tell when the beancounters took over from the techies.

Sorry, for some reason I got signed out, but Ive re-logged in again.

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions, some look productive and very well worth further investigation.

Please keep them coming.

And again I request that this thread get pinned because of how many people this google "move" will negatively impact.

As many people as possible need this info....agreed??

Re: GOOGLE'S PRIVACY CHANGES- A SIMPLE INSTANT CURE FOR EVERYONE
Dump Chrome for Firefox or IE

Dump Gmail for ?

We need a list of everything Google does - and alternates available.

Google makes their money from advertising - CTR (click through rates) are the benchmark. NEVER click on any Google links to businesses. Instead, just cut & paste the URL into the browser (seperate window might help?) - you still get where you want to go, but advertisers will see traffic from Google wither.

In fact, that would be a neat plug-in, something that would bypass Google when clicking on anything, yet still use their search engine.

Yep, use em and lose em..ha!

all work and no pay...they'll get the idea ...greed = great disslike.

They have what we call "Tall Poppy Syndrome" here in Australia.

And we are real good at correcting those self inflated pre-dispositons.

How do I know, I tried it once, it was a terrific lesson in humility.

And...Im proud to admit I learnt from my stupitity.

I think Im a better person today for it.

PLEASE...

Suggest this thread get pinned...

550 views is just NOT going to make any significant difference to googles plans and we all need to have some options.

Thats why this needs to stay "Front Page" for a while...just to give all the floaters on GLP a chance to find an alternative.

Please help here..

Just deleted my Google+ account. My only Gmail address is used for SPAM, so I'm not too concerned about it. I might close out the Gmail and move my Spam address to an alias in my @LIVE.com account though :/

Thank you so much to whom ever "pinned" this thread.

It is probably one of the most important opportunities that we might have at re-gaining our freedoms and internet inderpendance.

Once again, I simply request any and all to offer their knowledge on this matter to assist us all with options and alternatives...conglomerates are always ultimately self focused and not necessarily beneficial to the overall good of the masses, as is the case at hand.

So good on you and please keep it moving

Startpage.com gives you google results, but you are not tracked or traced.

the only thing I don't like about startpage.com is that I hate Google, and want to avoid them entirely!

What do you think about www.duckduckgo.com ?? Is it better in terms of privacy (the creator say they do no tracking at all) or it's Google in disguise? You know, something like false alternative created by Google so we can think that we have choice like Pepsi vs Cola.
