Don’t visit Google websites for two years!!
July 17, 2007
In a token gesture to privacy advocates, Google have announced that they will auto-delete their cookies if a user doesn’t visit a Google website within two years.
Google cookies were set to delete after the year 2039 previously.
I find this quite funny! This means users need to abstain from Googling or visiting Google websites for two whole years! I don’t know anyone who could go two years without visiting a Google web property, or anyone who would want to.
Perhaps this should be set up as some kind of a challenge. Let’s see who can manage two years without visiting a Google site and then we can see if their cookies really will delete or not! Otherwise, how will we ever know if this really is going to happen 😉
First person to reply to his post in two years will win a prize (not sure what yet)…
