Speaking at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Friday, Google’s Eric Schmidt said he is “pretty sure” your data is safe.
The Google executive chairman said the web giant has upgraded its encryption process in a project that was accelerated after former NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed troves of classified information.
“We are pretty sure the information that is inside of Google right now is safe from prying eyes, especially the government,” Schmidt said. “We think your data is very safe.”
