Microsoft Takes On Google App Store As Part Of Scroogled Campaign

Microsoft Bing team launched the Scroogled campaign last year to make customers aware of the Google’s privacy violations. For example, Google scans your email content in Gmail to serve you ads! Few days back, they released a new version of the ad focusing on Google App Store through which every Android user will download apps/games. When you buy an Android app from the Google app store, Google gives the app maker your full name, email address and the neighborhood where you live without any clear warning to the consumers every single time when they buy an app.

Here is their point,

Unlike Google, Windows Phone Store doesn’t share your personal information with app makers.

Google hands over details about you to app makers without any clear warning, placing your personal information in the hands of unknown third parties. The privacy breach could potentially lead to spam and online harassment.

It’s not necessary for an app maker to have your full name, email address and neighborhood, so Windows Phone Store refrains from passing on this sensitive information.

If you can’t trust Google’s app store, how can you trust them for anything?

Microsoft is trying to promote Windows Phone and Bing in a single ad ! ! What do you think of this ad?
