From buying simple everyday objects to visualizing study materials, we prefer hunting it on Google. Some people even buy toilet paper online. Well! You should always keep in mind that whatever you are searching on Google engine, it basically records what type of person you are, what are your shopping interests, your needs and insecurities, your living place and even your medical conditions.
In order to access the Internet most of us usually look for free or public internet access. Did you know that when you sign into any public or work internet network, all your online activities are under observation by the network provider? If you are looking for a party dress or any gaming station, better not to search this over your work place network. Although it might sound suspicious, trust me it’s true because all Google searches are not legal.
You won’t believe what type of weird searches people are capable of doing online. Recently a man named Gilberto Valle was convicted searching some weird things like “Where to buy the world’s largest baking dish? How to properly tie a woman to a rotating life-size barbecue spit? How to chloroform a girl”?
This example teaches you two lessons: one, don’t ever try to eat humans, second, if anyhow you are trying to commit a crime, do not search it on Google.
If you make any searches related to murder or kidnapping on the Internet, it is possible that you may get into trouble. Can you imagine that a pressure cooker and a backpack can be suspected as a source of the terrorist search made on Google?
A blogger Michele Catalano was convicted for searching a pressure cooker for making quinoa, while her husband was looking for a backpack. But this combined search from the same house turned out to be a suspective search for Boston bombing. Immediately after getting trapped, a joint police force surprised the couple. But luckily nothing strange was found at their place.
So, beware all your Google searches are tracked. Better think twice before searching anything strange next time.
