Google Vows "Stronger Controls" to Protect Privacy

Google is "building stronger controls" to safeguard privacy, a senior executive said after the search engine giant's admission to inadvertently gathering emails and passwords across the globe. Peter Fleischer, Google's global privacy counsel, told reporters at a conference on Internet security he was "puzzled" that users had made scant use of privacy controls made available on the site months ago, and Google would try to improve them.
