As Google always says that its users privacy is its main concerns and Google always takes its users privacy a serious concerns. So on these matter, getting a child pornography on users email and making him arrested, makes a question on users privacy. Does Google regularly go through our mails to find incriminating evidence? What about our privacy then?
Unfortunately the Google spokesperson have not revealed the details of the technology. But he says that-
"It is important to remember that we only use this technology to identify child sexual abuse imagery -- not other email content that could be associated with criminal activity (for example using email to plot a burglary).”The spokesperson made it clear that Google special technology only scans for the child abuse imagery not the other criminal activities, nor it reads users emails.
So I asked to my readers that is this clarification is sufficient to set your minds at ease ? Do you still thinks that Google scan each users emails ?
