Google Reconsiders Censored Search Engine
According to a report by The Intercept delivered on Monday, Google is likely to halt its censored search project for China.
Members of the Dragonfly team are said to have been utilizing large data sets pulled from the Beijing-based website 265.com, which Google owns, to help build the censored search product.
Business Insider reports when Google's privacy team found out about the use of search data, however, they were "really pissed" and ultimately made the decision that the 265.com data could no longer be used.
Google originally planned to launch its censored search engine, known as Dragonfly, between January and April 2019.
