Google now has all a information it needs, will stop scanning Gmail inboxes for ad personalization


Here’s a warn proclamation from Google: It will stop scanning a inboxes of Gmail’s giveaway users for ad personalization during some indicate after this year.

Google already doesn’t do this for business users who allow to a G Suite services, yet until now, it customarily scanned a inboxes of a giveaway users to improved aim ads for them. It afterwards total that information with all else it knows about a users to build a promotion profiles for them.

Diane Greene, Google’s comparison VP for Google Cloud, says a association done this preference since it “brings Gmail ads in line with how we personalize ads for other Google products.”

Google won’t stop display ads in Gmail, though, and it’s value observant that given how most a association already knows about all of a users, it usually competence not need these additional signals from Gmail. And maybe they even incited out to be comparatively invalid or even unpropitious for ad performance.

As most as I’d like to trust that Google is doing this out of a integrity of a heart, chances are a usually reason a association would make any changes to a promotion products is since it has information that shows it doesn’t need this additional information about a users. So far, a inbox scanning doesn’t seem to have hampered Gmail’s growth; it now has 1.2 billion users.

That, of course, is not what Greene says in today’s announcement. According to a central line, a thought here is to some-more closely align G Suite’s Gmail and consumer Gmail.
