How to Prevent Google From Using Your Name and Face in Ads

Google’s changed their privacy policies again. Though you may not be surprised to hear that, you may be shocked to hear what the latest change allows Google to do. As of right now, Google’s privacy policy allows them to use your image and your words and place them in ads to entice your friends to buy things you’ve liked. If you’ve reviewed an app, +1’s a link or left a comment on YouTube, you’re open game.

If you’re OK with Google using your likeness in this manner, no problem. If not, PCWorld’s Brad Chacos recently posted an article explaining how you can opt out. If you head over to the Shared Endorsements page in Google+, you can deselect the option that states, “Based upon my activity, Google may show my name and profile photo in shared endorsements that appear in ads.” Once done, click “Save” and you no longer have to worry about it.

If you’ve got privacy minded friends, make sure to share this tidbit with them.
