But fans did figure out relatively early on that they were all looking in one direction, before this challenge was ever issued. Despite being on opposite ends of the map, they were all staring toward a central point. There was a theory that this might be a new season 5 mystery to be uncovered, but in truth it seems it was only leading up to this challenge.
'''jeannot52:''' SweetIM is a totally different, but seemingly as invasive, pest. You can "Google" it to get information. Removal of "Default Tab" is the key in ridding your system of the culprit that installs the "Search here" tab as posted by the OP, '''''bd67807'''''. Be careful when downloading and installing applications/add-ons from the internet as some include such extra items. Most, but not all, will give the user an opportunity during installation to un-check items to not install or to not change search engines. The add-ons on the Firefox/Mozilla add-ons site are fairly clean from this kind of pest. *https://addons.mozilla.org/

The answer for me is a resoundingly definitive NO! And I don't want to. I am deeply hooked into the Google ecosystem from Chrome OS and Android to Chromecast and a huge collection of their services. And I must admit I thoroughly enjoy having access to and using them even with the knowledge that Google uses them to collect a lot of data about me. That said, I feel that Google really does do a good job of letting me know when and how it is collecting my data as well as how they use it. Do I trust them 100%? No. There are certain things that I do take precautions to protect, be it encrypting certain documents I store in the cloud, using a vpn and incognito mode when appropriate, as well as using services, apps, and backups from other providers. In the end though, when all is said and done, I cannot think of one single thing that Google has done to harm me in any tangible way.
I do like the fact that Epic is making these search between challenges a little more involved. This was one they set up from the initial planning of the season, and would definitely be one of the more difficult ones if…you didn’t have guides like this to look up so you can skip calculating where exactly six statues are looking for yourself. With a few more weeks to go, I wonder if there are any other elaborate hunts like this in the cards, like some secret in Viking Village people haven’t figured out yet. I’m also hoping for more map additions like the village and the stone heads, but here in week 6, we really have not seen any significant additions like that all season long.
as far as email and browsers go.. yeah use a vpn, use a browser that doesnt track your stuff, thats fine. But none of the "secure" email services do well with mail@yourowndomain so your options are use gsuite or microsoft or leave your email on the most insecure place possible, the same server your website is on? no thanks. ill stick with the company that is big enough to keep blowing money on security as i am more worried about other people getting my information than i am of facebook sending me ads based on things ive spoken out loud near my phone or searched for.

Katzman, for one, doesn’t think the additional data will do much to change the process of sifting through that information. Google is “always trying to make searches more semantically smart,” he said, but “applying to college is not like buying a toaster.” It’s a decision that is made over weeks or months through a complex process informed by financial-aid promises, standardized-test scores, and insight from counselors or other advisers.

You may need to reset a preference if "Search Results" or "My Search Results" is appearing as a search engine every time you open a new tab (follow steps 1-4 below the image to determine what opens when you click to open a new tab; see about:config usage above) - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/new-tab-page-show-hide-and-customize-top-sites#w_how-do-i-turn-the-new-tab-page-off
