I have Opera set so nothing is saved.. not even cookies, use CCleaner before every reboot, constantly change my IP via TMAC, use OperaTor, HostsMan, etc.
If after all those precautions and Google is still able to pin-point who i am .. good for them.
i just don't see how my 'search terms' can be used against me..
Hence the paranoia comment.
lol.. not paranoid.
if i was paranoid.. i wouldn't use Google.
CCleaner: makes my computer faster
TMAC: my ISP issues 'static' IPs, and i need TMAC to force a change of IP, which i do to prevent being hacked.. not so much due to paranoia.
HostsMan: blocks servers that track/ads/malware.
OperaTor: uses Tor for sensitive data.
i use those not so much because of paranoia.. but for speed/performance.. it just happens to also provide the added benefit of security.
Per my signature:
that's the closest server w/in 50 miles.. i don't even live in that state
Paranoia ? i wouldn't say so..
Per Google: even if they can track me via it's server/my IP.. i change my IP so often it would require a lot of work for them to track me down.
If me searching for quick answers on Google is that important for them .. then good for them.
