Ask.com's Privacy Tool Tracks Users, Groups Tell Feds

Discussion in 'Anti-Virus' started by George Orwell, Jun 2, 2008.

  1. A coalition of privacy groups filed a federal complaint Saturday
    against Ask.com, alleging that AskEraser - the company's recently
    unveiled search engine history anonymization tool - doesn't actually
    protect users' privacy and could be used to track people when they
    thought they were anonymous.

    The groups, which include the Electronic Privacy Information Center,
    are asking the Federal Trade Commission to find that Ask.com is engaged
    in unfair trade practices by making false promises to users. The groups
    want the FTC to force the company to modify the program.
