The big news today is that Ask.com unleashed its privacy software program Eraser that deletes user searches within hours. In July the search engine promised to give its users the power to control the usage of their search history and the ability to erase it, if needed.
"When enabled, AskEraser will completely delete your search queries and data from Ask.com servers, including: your IP address, User ID and Session ID cookies, as well as the complete text of your search query–all within a matter of hours.", promises the search engine website.
Now that all the major search engines expressed concerns about privacy and agreed to retain customers search records only for 18 months, I am still ready to bet with anyone that Ask.com will not be the only search engine with customized privacy tool for customers.
