What’s up with Google and search-queries?
On October 18, Google announced on their blog that they would be rolling out a new change that would effectively encrypt search query data in order to make search safer.
Unfortunately for them, nobody’s buying it.
Google has long been an advocate for secure Internet, having offered Gmail users the option to elect for the HTTPS (S for secure) version of the site and for its other web applications.
Now, the company has decided to make that security setting the default and any search conducted while a user is logged into Gmail (read: all the time) will be hidden.
