Google Google has updated its privacy policy - in fact, it has consolidated a mess of over 70 different privacy policies each covering an individual service into one, simpler policy. You'll now be treated as a single account, and data will be shared between Google services to make search results and ads more personalised (I assumed they already did that - makes sense).

Then, someone adds your email, photo, address and phonenumber to their smartphone and synchronises that with their Google Account:


Yup, and Facebook has the same thing on their mobile app. Even if you don't give them your phone number, address, etc, somebody else will if they have you in their contacts and use the sync feature.
