Google will stop scanning Gmail content for ad targeting

Quote:
Later this year, Google will stop relying on the content of consumer Gmail messages to serve up personalized ads, the company announced Friday.

Consumer Gmail content will not be used or scanned for ads, the company said, bringing the consumer version of the popular email service in line with the business version, which is part of G Suite.

"G Suite customers and free consumer Gmail users can remain confident that Google will keep privacy and security paramount as we continue to innovate," Diane Greene, SVP of Google Cloud wrote in a blog post.

Hi,
I've personally never seen any adds in gmail unlike outlook.com which shows nothing but adds without you know what installed
So as far as scanning goes it is an expected trait of free services now google admits finally and is going to somehow stop = okay lol

I suppose 10's basic telemetry is as good as it gets for MS and doesn't even apply to other online/ apps which there are way too many to count and of course no way to opt out even if you took a year to read all of MS's terms of use disclosures.....
