Google Sent Me the Creep Reel

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

To recap: I am not fascinated by weird stuff. I practice excellent online hygiene and do not click on click bait. No violence, terrorism, or even play video games, and I seldom click anything marked, "ad," for what it is worth. Maybe a dozen or so times in the last ten years.

Google displays ads and side reel videos based on IP address. Signing in or out effects changes only to fool the uneducated masses that they are viewing anonymously. Google always knows who you are, based on IP address or mobile device number via smartphone. Aside from that, they collect search or viewing patterns which could identify an individual from a different IP address, or via VPN. Here follows the disturbing images "Recommended for you [me]" on the side reel of Youtube, which I printed and snail mailed to the police, the Assistant Attorney General, and to others.

Again though. Google only has a couple of ways to identify you specifically. The main method is YOU ARE LOGGED INTO GOOGLE and you have History enabled. Doesn't matter what your IP is or what VPN you use. The other is via COOKIE and why both myself and others have said before you need to delete the google cookies. Actually using a 3rd party tool such as CookieAutoDelete is probably better than trying to do it with Chrome or manually. The other method of fingerprinting is technically possible but I have seen no proof provided even in underground hacking groups that Google has openly targeted someone with Ads or otherwise monitored them across devices.

1. Log into Google Chrome, go through all your security settings and ensure all tracking methods, history, etc are disabled.
2. Delete your Google Chrome SYNC on every computer you use and on your cell phone, smart phone. Make sure all cookies and sync on any device you use on Google has been deleted.
3. DO NOT log into Google's main site or YouTube site. Browse YouTube as an Anonymous Guest (which you appear to be doing already)
4. The most important. STOP using Google Chrome and if possible remove it from your computer and use Firefox or another browser.

 

Following the above information, and utilizing the information below there really is no easy, good way for Google or YouTube to continue this behavior.  In general, the COOKIE is almost always the main culprit behind this.

 

 

If you're not backing up your data and you're still using Google Chrome then you're just not serious about Privacy, Safety, and protecting your data. Malwarebytes is a fantastic program but you still need to back up your data and you still need to block scripts and Ads in your browser. 
If you're still using Google Chrome I would highly suggest you consider using Firefox instead. For more advanced users you might consider installing NoScript as well (it does have a higher learning curve though)

Word about Live Advertising. This term is not for the public. You know how you see ads almost in real time, as soon as you discuss a topic via phone? Or after searching a topic? Ads are very targeted, manipulating you to make you take action, whether purchase a product, or give up private information. Social and tech companies employ the cream of psychology experts to design ads which capture the user's attention, or motivate them to do something.

Even this forum, controlled by Google softwares, acts as a conduit between you [comment poster] and Google to enable real time inspection of comments, with the info sold off to shady and unscrupulous entities who would try to access your computer. I reported to the admins here how I received fraud calls impersonating Microsoft tech staff, every time I posted here, so that Malwarebytes posted a warning somewhere. The forum prohibits printing, as does most Google softwares, such as the new gmail UI. The new Gmail UI allows gmail insiders to inspect your gmails in real time, if you have been flagged by Google. My gmail has been accessed and reorganized from a z-type cloud from within the interface.

Any website which uses Google Analytics and / or Google Tags has the potential to PUSH malware via the js.

insiders at Big Tech Giants: Google, FB, and Twitter compound dossiers of online behavior they acquire and share, with credit card and bank info they acquire, with the everyday routines people allow them to observe via nfc-equipped phones, with gps info built-in modern cars, to assemble profiles, based on IP address and Mobile phone ID numbers, which make them out power even the government entities established to protect the consumers, and law enforcement.

That is why Google displays disturbing images along fan cam video to my IP address. That, and I prevailed over a Google-partner Golden Voice copyright dispute, and I acquired lots of high-quality youtube videos over the months, using various apps.

Yes, it can and does happen in micro seconds. If you look at a browser blocking tool like uBlock Origin and/or NoScript you'll see all the various other sites involved in the connection. In some cases it can be upwards of 100+ other sites being part of your connection. The good thing though is that tools listed above like uBlock Origin and NoScript as well as CookieAutoDelete help prevent and control how much of that behavior is allowed.

If I turn off all blocking and cookie control and I browse YouTube for an hour looking at all kinds of weird junk. Then close my browser and come back later on. I will have all kinds of suggestions and recommendations for all that weird stuff. But, if I keep my blocking tools and cookie tools enabled, it cleans the cookie automatically over and over even in the same session and on page refresh I have no recommendations for anything similar to what I've been watching.

Hi AdvancedSetup,

We have had this discussion. You said:

Quote

Google only has a couple of ways to identify you specifically. The main method is YOU ARE LOGGED INTO GOOGLE and you have History enabled. Doesn't matter what your IP is or what VPN you use.

 

As predominantly a Windows-based computer user, I beg to differ. I would say:

 

The MAIN method Google uses to identify you is IP address or International Mobile Equipment Identity.

 

Log ins offer a false sense of anonymity for users to feel privacy logged off. Surely - and I agree - Google supplies a higher degree of customization for log ins, and prefers people are logged in. Just now I checked Google News as an "anonymous" user:

 

weatherBasedonIPaddress.thumb.jpg.f704d3a7ba6d7e190face2ca94d666e5.jpg

 

It displays customized weather based on my IP address.

If I "anonymously" - not logged in - do a Google search for IP address, my IP address appears right away:

 

- Edited to add Google search of IP address screen shot with IP address obscured.

 

GoogleKnowsIPaddressCut01082020.thumb.jpg.97cd066728a6c80a6e220d355bc92b26.jpg

 

In a 2018 discussion about GDPR, the concern is Google Analytics Tracking Code collect IP adresses, therefore is not GDRP-compliant:
 

Quote

 

The standard Google Analytics tracking installation collects your users' IP addresses.

Now, you might be thinking: “What are you talking about, I can't see IPs in my analytics account.”

When users land on your website, your Google Analytics tracking code collects their IP addresses. But Google strips IP data before it enters your reports.

So although you can't see user IPs in Google Analytics, your account still collects this data.

What reports does this IP data enable? This data fuels your Geo reports, service provider reports, and also allows you to filter specific users from reports by entering their IP address.

 

[Hi Advanced. I am responding to your first reply. I see you posted a couple of others.]

 

IP address [desktop] and  IMEI Number [mobile] are the "MAIN methods Google uses to identify you."

Are you resisting reality, because it is so disturbing? I don't blame you.

As I said there are other methods to track, but, please show proof that Google or their site YouTube is tracking you based on that and sending you data. I have seen zero proof of this and I visit some underground sites that certainly would be up in arms and providing proof if they had it.

I have been doing computer support since before Google was even a company and I have helped thousands and thousands of users in that time and I have never seen proof of Google openly using thee other methods (though technically possible) to advertise, monitor, or track for monetary gain anyone.

I'm about done with this topic though and will probably unsubscribe from monitoring it as you seem set in your beliefs. I do wish you the best though and hope that someone is able to assist you at some point

Thank you and take care

Do you mean proof that Google et al track via IP address [desktop] and  IMEI Number [mobile]?

Google collects IP addresses via Adsense and / or Analytics. You don't have to be signed in. It tracks you via IP address. Or, if mobile is your main access to online, it tracks via IMEI number. It combines the dossier of all your online activity with your personally identifiable info from Gmail, YouTube and other Google / Alphabet accounts and apps. And it is allowed to. You allowed it to, when you use anything Google, signed in or not. That is why my IP address appeared on search.

 

Quote

when you visit a website that uses advertising services like AdSense, including analytics tools like Google Analytics, or embeds video content from YouTube, your web browser automatically sends certain information to Google. This includes the URL of the page you’re visiting and your IP address

- https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites

 

Why do you not believe Google would use IP address and IMEI number to track individuals? First Google's privacy policy allows it.

 

Quote

We also collect information about the interaction of your apps, browsers, and devices with our services, including IP address.

 

Quote

 

Your location can be determined with varying degrees of accuracy by:

 

- https://policies.google.com/privacy

 

As an aside, Prior to 2016, Google said, “we will not combine DoubleClick cookie information with personally identifiable information unless we have your opt-in consent.” 

 

In 2016, Google users’ personally identifiable information from Gmail, YouTube and other accounts has been merged with their browsing records from across the web. See:


NewPrivacy2016.thumb.jpg.eed1935471e131404e32e73c93ba5c0f.jpg

Google collects IP address via Adsense and Analytics. That would be most web pages on the internet, right? Billions. You don't have to be signed in.

Being signed out offers a false sense of not being tracked.

Advanced, you are smarter than I am. I am not very tech savvy. Yet, I have a computer systems degree from long ago, am detail-minded, and have observed the infiltration of the US Mafia into the internet. They know and I know, and that is why they send me those creepy ads. They like me, even if they have determined to execute me, because I am smart and not a chump, right guys?

Okay, I shot video of this discussion for the record.

That is how I caught Advanced deleted the exposed IP address screen shot.

If anyone of the insiders at Google think of removing this discussion, AdvancedSetUp will know.

Google is clowning with you! The code in this software allows Google insider access, via the cloud. I studied the code. It is full of problematic tags.

May I suggest, NCH Software Debut Video Capture Software? You may demo it free, for a few captures. Turn on the Entire Virtual Desktop.Then it is $40.00.

Google in other ways is trying to discredit Malwarebytes.

As far as I know Google has no direct access to the code that runs this site; it is proprietary to IPS; only Google's bot/spider is allowed to crawl it (as is the case with most sites) for SEO/indexing (i.e. read-only access), though Ron (AdvancedSetup) can confirm since he's the root admin here on the forums.

Hi exile360, Do you know about Google Tag Manager?

Adsense has been abused from malvertising campaigns, and attackers injected malware to generate revenue for the attackers.

Considered worse than either of these is Google Tag Manager, which this forum employs. Google said about Tag Manager:

Quote

 

    With so many measurement tools out there, marketers need flexibility — whether that’s changing tags on the fly or having the ability to easily add tags from other sources.

    In Google Tag Manager, marketers can add or change their own tags as needed. Tag Manager supports all tags and has easy-to-use turnkey templates for a wide range of Google and third-party tags — for web and mobile apps. Don’t see a tag listed? You can add it immediately as a custom tag. With so much flexibility, your campaign can be underway with just a few clicks

 

.

Malicious JavaScript can pose some serious risks directly to your visitors, such as unknowingly mining cryptocurrencies directly on the visitor’s browser.

See the article, Malicious Activities with Google Tag Manager
- https://blog.sucuri.net/2018/04/malicious-activities-google-tag-manager.html

 

So, what the problem is, is Insiders can access the Google Tag Manager, and insert any code it wants, and apparently you are dealing with the glitches caused by this issue, and it doesn't surprise me. Investors of the Google insiders resent Malwarebytes from keeping phones and laptops safe from their malvertising, and promote their phony security solutions which they have money in.

Perhaps the page you have read the replies on is not the one you think. Instead, it is a separate page called by the url you go to, which keeps refreshing because of new javascripts inserted via Tag Manager. That is why the topic always says, Unread.

 

On a separate note, it used to be after - I don't know - a brief time after posting a comment, I was not able to Edit it. On this thread, the Edit link appears for all the comments. Has the Edit capacity been extended, time-wise? Will it only end when the thread is closed?

Interesting reading, thanks :)

As far as I know, this forum doesn't use Google Tag Manager either.  It only allows the Google search indexer to index results for page ranks and searches.

Hi Exile360, Thanx for liking the article! 🙂 Why do you say "this forum doesn't use Google Tag Manage?" Just View Page Source of the code, and Go to Edit / Find, and type, Google Tag. This is what appears as to my code:

			<!-- Google Tag Manager -->
<noscript>
<iframe src="//www.googletagmanager.com/ns.html?id=GTM-MKSKW3"
height="0" width="0" style="display:none;visibility:hidden"></iframe>
</noscript>
<script>(function(w,d,s,l,i){w[l]=w[l]||[];w[l].push({'gtm.start':
new Date().getTime(),event:'gtm.js'});var f=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],
j=d.createElement(s),dl=l!='dataLayer'?'&l='+l:'';j.async=true;j.src=
'//www.googletagmanager.com/gtm.js?id='+i+dl;f.parentNode.insertBefore(j,f);
})(window,document,'script','dataLayer','GTM-MKSKW3');</script> 
<!-- End Google Tag Manager -->
		

Nasty!

and, by the way, My Disconnect on Firefox has blocked 12 Google Requests, 17 in all. This cloud template, Invision Community, is problematic.

How about the, Edit, question? If I ask Ron to close this topic, will I lose the Edit link?
