Did you hear about Google’s new wannabe Facebook Ad promotion where they use your Face and Name in Ads?  Or as they word it “recommendations for your friends”.

Creepy.

I don’t know of anyone that really wants that.  Here are the easy steps to disable it.

1) Log into your Google/Google+ Profile and go into your settings or click this link.

2) Once in, scroll to the bottom and uncheck the only   “Based upon my activity, Google may show my name and profile photo in shared endorsements that appear in ads.”.

3) Click save.

4) Click Continue on this screen:

googleoptout1

 

 

5) Next validate the settings took, but either going back to the link or looking in your Google+ Profile

googleoptout2

 

 

If it says Off, you should be all set.
