You’ve probably heard by now that Google is changing its privacy policy as of March 1, 2012. But have you read the new policy yet?

Google explains the new policy as an integration of all of their policies and products into one, so as to better be able to serve their users. I am one of those people who lets Google run my life. I have an Android phone, jumped on the Google+ bandwagon and I use Google products for just about everything possible. Like many of you, I have become pretty dependent on Google. Fortunately when I read their policy I didn’t think it actually looked so terrible as it has been made out to be. Especially because you can opt out of ads and set preferences to not save your search history. I’m not sure what the big deal is about these changes.

Yes, there are a few things that sound scary at first, but then I remember that Google already has all of my information (the new policy doesn’t give it access to more) and they do a pretty good job of keeping it safe.

This video, sent by a dear friend, sums up the issues pretty nicely:
