No Google does not sell your data.
They definitely collect data on you, but no, they don’t sell that information.
You are used for targeted advertising based on your data.
Does Google sell your data?
Q: “Does Google sell your personal data”? The answer is both no and yes. That duality is the genius of Google. Google operates a vast data collection infrastructure that’s deeply integrated into most of its products, especially the Android operating system and the Chrome browser.
Does Apple sell your data Reddit?
Because Apple only collects the data that’s needed. If you’re using iCloud to store files, well, Apple needs those files on their server. They don’t really need to collect tons of user data to do that. And even if they do, they don’t sell it (if they did, we’d probably know about it, at least to some degree).
Does Facebook sell your data?
No, Facebook doesn’t sell your data. But it does sell access to you, or more specifically, access to your News Feed, and uses that data to show you specific ads it thinks you’re likely to enjoy or click on. This targeted advertising is big business for Facebook.
Can Google be trusted?
Sure, Google can be trusted to keep Chrome secure and well-maintained, and Google can also be trusted to be around for the next few years. But that’s it. But we can’t trust Google to keep our information private. But our anonymity on the internet is slipping away, and Google is only contributing to that.
Does Google steal your information?
The short answer: no. It’s more valuable to them if they keep it for themselves. This is a question (often posed as a fact, but it’s not) we see almost daily. Someone in an article’s comments or on social media will trot out the line about how Google sells your private data and it is evil and so on.
