Editorial #158: You Are Being Spied On
Autism Politico is aware that Google has been accused of spying in the UK. If you live in England, it may have your email addresses, or even your passwords.
The company has admitted it downloaded personal data from wireless networks when its fleet of vehicles drove down residential roads taking photographs for its controversial Street View project.
Other countries may have also had their privacy breached.
Isn’t that great? If you’ve written an email about how much you hate your autistic child, it may have made its way into the hands of Google, and there is always someone who might hack Google to see what your email looks like. Or if your passwords leak out somehow, people could access your accounts and see what you have written.
Or perhaps you were on a forum when Google passed by, and you were chatting about subjecting your kid to some illegal or quack autism therapy.
Although at present, Google is intending to destroy the data, what if they sifted through it and reported what you are doing to your local child welfare agency, or to the police?
Just a few thoughts.
