(Natural News)
Google has come under fire for many questionable actions as of late — and the 
startling revelation that their widely used web browser, Google Chrome, is
scanning personal computers around the world is nothing short of infuriating 
for its users. Big Brother is here — and countless numbers of people have
invited this authoritarian presence (in one form or another) while being none 
the wiser. Indeed, some of the world’s largest corporations (like Google
and Amazon) are continuing to find new ways to invade user privacy.


In addition to a spying web browser, devices like Google Home and the Amazon 
Echo (and Alexa) are going places where the prying eyes of corporate interests
have never gone before. Worse still, they’ve convinced us to willingly purchase 
these devices and place them in our homes. People are actually paying for
the “privilege” of being spied on — all the while turning a blind eye to the 
total invasion of privacy for the sake of “convenience” and keeping up with
the Jones’.


Google Chrome has become the trendy browser of choice, but not without a cost 
to users. A shocking report recently revealed that a series of “updates”
to Chrome gave it the ability to scan all the files on Windows computers. It 
may be the browser so-called security pros suggest, but as it turns out, 
security blanket may just be a ruse so they can take your information for 


You see, the Google Clean-up Tool was turned into a mandatory part of Chrome in 
2017 — and users were never made aware of this new feature.


As this quote 
reported by Information Liberation


In practice, Chome [sic] on Windows looks through your computer in search of 
malware that targets the Chrome browser itself using ESET’s antivirus engine.
If it finds some suspected malware, it sends metadata of the file where the 
malware is stored, and some system information, to Google. Then, it asks you
to for permission to remove the suspected malicious file. (You can opt-out of 
sending information to Google by deselecting the “Report details to Google”


Google proponents claim that these newly released “security features” bear no 
risk of infringing on user privacy — but the fact that this web browser’s
modus operandi is to literally scan every file on your computer has raised more 
than a few eyebrows — especially because all of these scans have been conducted
under a cloak of secrecy. Most users had no idea that Google Chrome would do 
this — and certainly were unable to provide explicit permission for the scans.


But it seems in the age of Big Brother, permission to surveil the masses is 


Dylan Curran, a web developer from Ireland, downloaded his own Google file and 
in a series of tweets, revealed that 
the corporation had been holding onto his data
 (and presumably, everyone else’s) since 2008. That decade’s worth of data 
included every YouTube video he’d watched, every place he’d traveled to, every
website he’d visited in the last year and more. The file totaled up to a 
staggering 5.5 gigabytes — which is reportedly equivalent to three million Word


Along with their authoritarian surveillance, Google has repeatedly been called 
out for acts of censorship.


It’s not just Google you need to be worried about, unfortunately. Amazon’s 
Alexa has also come under fire for spying on users, and a new patent indicates
the problem of 
corporate surveillance is only going to get worse.
Amazon recently filed a patent for a “voice sniffer algorithm.” Effectively, 
this would allow Alexa to passively listen to your household conversations
in real-time, while waiting to identify “trigger words” that give Amazon 
insight into your home and your life.


Natural News founder Mike Adams, the Health Ranger and director of CWC Labs, 
recently reported on how dangerous these companies are
 and why they need to be stopped — before their totalitarian tactics become the 
law of the land.
