Google Mobile Meter Apps to Monitor User Habits and Reward Them

Google is about to introduce a novel service that lets it track the browsing abilities of its user base. Termed Mobile Meter, the new feature uses certain heuristic devices to monitor application usage and the common idiosyncrasies of the consumers. There are issues having to do with confidentiality. 

However, Google has reportedly set the procedure to be a voluntary operation. There will be no compulsory surveillance whatsoever.  Furthermore, the data it collects will not be aired in public. So that ought to set the users’ minds at ease. As far as any compensation for its snooping behavior is concerned, there have been no signs so far. 

The previous year, Google began its Account Activity, which was a tool that allowed you to browse everything you’ve accomplished via Google services. Google has clarified the fact that the current project is not exactly a new proposal. Rather it had been partially going on since quite some time. 

The spokesperson at Google didn’t make any further commentary on the Mobile Meter. Keeping track of your daily activities on the Google platform is something that may raise hackles among some individuals but the watchful eye is probably just a benign information collection ruse. It is not to be considered to be of the same magnitude as the NSA’s spying activities.
