Former Google CEO says you should not be using Google if you value privacy

This was said in 2009. Now he’s Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of Google:

“If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place,”

via Google chief: Only miscreants worry about net privacy • The Register.

I think is saying you should not be using Google if privacy is important to you. He goes on to say that Google retains information and “we are all subject in the United States to the Patriot Act and it is possible that all that information could be made available to the authorities“. Interesting statement in light of recent news that Google might be a business partner of the NSA.
