Leave a Comment


The government may soon ask all the officials to stop using Gmail services as reported by TOI. This decision might be taken after  Edward Snowden reported that National Security Agency (NSA) has being tracking all the private information like emails,chats etc from major companies like Google,Facebook,Microsoft etc.Instead of Gmail,the employees should use email service provided by India's National Informatics Centre .

"Gmail data of Indian users resides in other countries as the servers are located outside. Currently, we are looking to address this in the government domain, where there are large amounts of critical data," said J Satyanarayana, secretary in the department of electronics and information technology.
