In most cases, Google can be a great help in finding something you need. However, sometimes it can work against you.
We at Elavonia made a list of things you should refrain from googling.
10. Your symptoms
First of all, let’s talk about your health problems. There are many websites that specialize in such content, and, of course, most of them are not managed by medical professionals. Looking up the meaning of your symptoms on the internet will definitely not help you. Quite the reverse — it will make you feel worse and panicked. If you have any kind of health issues, don’t ask “Doctor Google.” Schedule a visit to a real doctor instead.
9. Anything criminal
Ok, this one is serious. You may try to look up things like “how to make a bomb“ or ”how to make amphetamines” out of pure interest. However, keep in mind that security and drug control services always track these kinds of searches, and your IP address can appear in such a database. You don’t want to get in trouble because of your curiosity, do you?
