My reasoning is simply trying to remain conscious @-26* and no heat, plus it looks like our bacon will be saved by CAL.

@Frozenoem  - Thank you for posting the article. It is interesting to know what's going on. It does make me wonder about Members of Congress, and why they aren't worried about their own data privacy. 

 

I'm not on Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media other than this website and Next Door. I have my privacy settings on all my devices and Google / Google Chrome set to the strictest possible, yet Google still manages to capture and display a lot of data. There are little clues that show up all over the place when I do web searches or browsing, and they always know my location even if I have it turned off or blocked.

There are many reason why you could see links to you and your searches anywhere and everywhere.

 

But, my brain says bed is calling, I finally have power and my batteries need charging. Power says  central heating restored๐Ÿ‘.

 

Some members of Congress and Most Senators work are clueless about social media or cybersecurity, think that was pc.The standard answer we were hacked, some GOP recently had his twitter feed hacked.

 

Re: Google and Chrome think I put something on AARP board about that, or else just read it.

 

Do you have other devices, like smartphones,or just chrome.Android, or iOS, Mac or Windows or Unix, Linux.Tablets Or ?

Great article and thanks for sharing.  Please keep us in mind and post any upcoming results of this much needed situation.  I don't believe many are listening, which in my opinion, is a shame. Regulations on this whole sector of our society needs to be addressed and kudos to Europe for their example.

 

Thanks again!
