#Google employees admit in lawsuit that the company made it nearly impossible for users to keep their location private: businessinsider.com/unredacted

Is that what they call "improving" #privacy of their users?



@IzzyOnDroid A surveillance capitalist like Google improving the privacy of their users is like a factory farm improving the welfare of its livestock.
