It’s CULTED with your 60-second NEWS BLAST.

If you’ve been spending your lockdown googling sites like Pornhub, you might be in for some bad news.

While you might think your browsing history isn’t being recorded on private browser tabs, Google has reportedly been tracking users even when using ‘Incognito’ mode.

This has led to the global giant being sued for a staggering $5Bn regarding claims that it has been illegally invading the privacy of users.

The lawsuit explains that “Google tracks and collects consumer browsing history and other web activity data no matter what safeguards consumers undertake to protect their data privacy.” And yes, it went on to clarify that even the “most intimate and potentially embarrassing things” are being tracked – you know what that means! 

What’s worse is that a joint study by Microsoft, Carnegie Mellon University and University of Pennsylvania last year investigated over 22,000 sex sites and found that 93% of pages track and leak users’ data to third-party organisations.

So what now, do we go back to magazines like it’s the 70s?
