The Swedish Public Healthcare portal 1177 — named so for historical reasons, since that is the Swedish “Dial-a-Nurse” phone number — is sending all your searches for embarrassing symptoms and sensitive medications to Google. Not as part of the search, ironically enough; it’s being sent to Google as part of Google Analytics, as seen in the screenshot below:
