It is a very polite stalker, it will ask if it is allowed to stalk you and will stop at any time and forget everything it knows about you.
I always hoped that if I got a stalker, it would be a cute girl.

it is all a bit worrying.
When we search for things now, we're already being profiled, and having ads come up on all future pages we go on.

Imagine that with things we see just going down the street.
Im sure there's many things you make take a glancing look at, and dont realise, that you wouldn't want to go down on your "profile"

If you don't want being stalked, you can opt out of targeted ads from Google, and use software like adblock plus (without blocking ads) to remove tracking elements from websites. Ads are why you can use websites for free, but tracking is another level entirely.

Thanks will give adblocker a try, as i have done the google settings multiple times, and it still happens.
I feel when we get google glasses though, we're always going to be opted in for enough things, with the only alternative being not to use them lol
