Controversy about Google Desktop

Posted on Saturday, February 11 2006 @ 22:54:20 CET by


Last week Google launched a new version of its Desktop search tool. The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a digital rights advocate, warns people about using this service as it may store copies of your documents on Google's servers.
The startlingly stern warnings came shortly after Google announced a new feature on Thursday that allows users to search the contents of one computer from a second computer.

In order to achieve that end, Google Desktop, the application in question, stores the contents of one computer on Google’s servers so that a user can search those files from his or her second computer.

The EFF urged consumers not to use the feature called “Search Across Computers” because it makes their personal data vulnerable to government subpoena, private litigants, and hackers.
Read on over at Red Herring to learn more about the controversy.
