“Today, launched Don’t Get Scroogled by Gmail, a national campaign at to educate Americans about Google’s practice of going through the contents of all Gmail emails to sell and target ads,” Microsoft stated in an official press release. Microsoft continues to encourage users to switch over to for better privacy. According to Microsoft, Google goes through your personal Gmail messages and uses that information to target and sell advertisements. If you head over to, Microsoft mentions that “ prioritizes your privacy. You won’t see ads based on keywords from your personal email.” Microsoft also offers up examples as well as two different studies that shows how Google “scroogles” its email users.
