How is Data Security Done?


Google offers its users the most comprehensive free online services. But everything has a price. Google collects data by following us. It's not a secret anyway. Google, the data collection program does not keep confidential. A lot of data is collected about things like search queries, location history, voice commands, etc.

The collected data is used by the artificial intelligence of google technology to develop applications (smart, fast and sensitive). But most importantly, google uses this data to improve its main revenue source, the advertising engine. With the collected data, advertising profiles are created. The services Google provides to us free of charge are converted to cash through the collected data. The data collected is the price of receiving services without paying money. Google has to do this in order to keep the company alive and continue the improvements.
