Get your Gmail settings out

GmailIf you have a Gmail or Google ID you might want to read the post at Ed’s Blogue on the privacy settings so that you are not automatically running a Google + account. Ed is very helpful when it comes to being alert to what is going on behind the scenes on devices and often writes posts which tell you how to fix the problem. His post shows you clearly how to alter your settings so you don’t automatically have a Google + account. Integrating the sorts of sites Google integrates is a massive task, so if you are on Gmail, Blogger, YouTube, TweetDeck and you have a Google ID you will be aware that Google tries to simplify going from one online community to the other. It can be helpful Chrome will preserve all your bookmarks and settings so you can log in on any computer and Chrome will run YOUR browser. Having one ID for a number of sites can be handy and then big companies like Google try to both advance their products by helping you join their version of whatever it is and also help you move between their products. In doing that you might get something you didn’t want. I don’t want a Google + account but my YouTube stuff is being pushed by my Google + account and some people have “found” me on the Net in a nice way because my Google + account exists. I never visit it and I never go there and I need to think if it is a problem for me or not. I can only say what I have said before. When you belong to a site, make a habit of checking the settings on a reasonably regular basis.
