Google has offered to pay $25 a year to watch users online behavior
Would you join a program like “Google Screenwise” to earn a little extra money? Join Here. The Search giant Google has announced that it will start paying some users in exchange for their search history as part of the company’s new project called ‘Screenwise’
Google recently started a new program in collaboration with Knowledge Networks called Screenwise which lets people browse the web while getting payed for it. The idea behind Screenwise is that Google wants to learn more from internet users to improve their own products and services to make a better online experience for everyone.
A few things are required in order to join. First, a participant will have to use Google Chrome as their default browser and in addition to that it’s required to install a special extension for your chrome browser so Google can collect the data, like for example all the sites that are visited. You also must have a Google account (which makes sense) and you have to be at least 13 years old.
The company said that those who sign up the first gift card with a value of 5 dollars is granted, so that’s easy money. After that a participant will get an additional 5 dollars gift card every three months up to a maximum of 25 dollars. The reward for everyone who’s participating longer than a year will be determined on a later moment.
People can choose to participate if it’s of interest and everyone who does participate has complete transparency and control over what Internet use is being included in the panel, the statement said.
