Google bows to privacy concerns on search data


Google has bowed to long standing concerns from privacy activists in the US and Europe, agreeing for the first time to limit the amount of time it will keep information about the internet searches made by its users.

The popular search engine has come in for persistent criticism over its practice of keeping information on its servers indefinitely.

That practice could leave internet users exposed to future requests for information from government agencies, or to potential misuse, critics say. Google bows to privacy concerns on search data - Financial Times - MSNBC.com
