Surveillance capitalism keeps on blurring the boundaries of privacy. The government and corporations benefit from it, leaving users unsure about what’s right and what’s not.

In this video, TikTok influencer Nicole H Tay sheds light on how the US government’s relationship with Google changed from 2000 to 2022.

In the early 2000s, Google was a broke search engine. To save itself, it started mining users’ data for targeted ads. At that time, the US government was focused on consumer privacy. Hence, it was planning to regulate Google’s practices. It included allowing users to -

  • Access their data.

  • Provide consent to data mining.

  • Edit or delete their information.

However, after the 9/11 attack, the government became suddenly interested in surveillance. It passed the Patriot Act and started a War on Terror to justify extreme invasions of privacy. Just like that, Google became the government's secret surveillance engine.
