in Google, Security + Privacy

Another reason I distrust Google so very much

Google will allow you to opt out of them including your home wireless router in their Location Server database. So long as you’re willing to rename your access point by adding “_nomap” to the SSID. Read their privacy counsel’s justification and uttered an involuntary curse. So if you want privacy you have to modify the router and every device that connects to it…

Google intros privacy solution for home routers, forces users to opt out.
