Fitbit Users Concerned With Privacy Search For Alternative After Google Acquires Fitbit
Many people have lost their trust in their Fitbit devices the moment they learnt that Google acquired Fitbit. While Google announced that they will not sell their health data or other personal information, not all users are convinced.
Besides using users’ personal data now, Google can also use this data a decade or two down the line with much more advanced AI and could do more, according to users who have decided to quit using Fitbit devices.
Health insurance companies stand to gain a lot if they ever get the chance to lay their hands at this data. Google has already been involved with some privacy issues.
The company has paid data privacy fines in the EU and made recent strides into the stringently regulated healthcare industry, which has caused the public to re-think seemingly harmless tools.
Most users love Fitbit’s products and the company has gathered a lot of trust due to the way it handled user data. However, now that Google has acquired Fitbit, users are skeptical about what would happen.
The fact that Google has partnered with health giant Ascension has not gone unnoticed either. All in all, Google knows everything there is to know about you. The question is if it is going to keep it confidential and safe.
