Privacy
 
So I started thinking more about electronic privacy... And, I started thinking more about my Chromebook (my primary device) and what Google is storing and tracking.

Just for grins, I open an https://duckduckgo.com/, type in a search phrase and view my results. The connection is https so it is encrypted. I then go to settings, history and there is my connection to https://duckduckgo.com/ and it also includes my search phrase. My expectation in going to https DuckDuckGo is that my search phrase and results would be between me and DuckDuckGo, but obviously, that's not the case. Using Incognito keeps the history from being recorded on your machine, but it is all still tracked by Google.

Any thoughts?
