Are you concerned that someone is looking over your shoulder while you browse the Internet? Government surveillance in the US seems to be the talk of the day, but Google seems poised to help. In a report for the Washington Post, Google says it will start encrypting users' searches to protect their privacy. Google's encryption plan is thought to be global in scope, although further details have yet to be unveiled.
Google's encrypted searches have already started in China, as an act of resistance against the country's censorship-oriented regime. Due to the fact that Chinese authorities didn't met Google's demands on searches, by censoring or redirecting websites, Google has been left with an insignificant share percentage of China's searching market, according to the report.
China's “Great Firewall” is said to be continually improved by Chinese authorities, so that certain content is blocked, and users' Internet activities are monitored. Chinese businesses especially seem to suffer, as international and global links are constantly being obstructed.
Google got on board with encryption after National Security Agency surveillance of Internet traffic in the US was exposed to the world by NSA's former employee, Edward Snowden. It was just last week that this courageous man had a livestream video talk at the South by Southwest Interactive conference, where he discussed issues concerning technology companies and cyber security.
Google feels the need to make its network stronger. The company says the many improvements in the encryption of Google Search have been made in hopes of stimulating and supporting industries to raise the standards of Internet security.
