Not sure if it is new, or I just noticed it, but every time I use Google search I get this: http://www.google.com/#spf=1605561863875 ....and every time the last six numbers change. A quick search yields these results: https://support.google.com/a/answer/33786?hl=en https://support.google.com/a/answer/35232 https://support.google.com/a/answer/48323 https://docs.mailshake.com/article/221-dns-record-google The thing is I never signed up for a domain account, or set up SPF, so unless this is something my ISP has done, it looks pretty dang shady to me, and I suspect the above links are not telling the whole story. I'm thinking this is another tracking method for tying searches to IP address. Opinions? From what I've understood, this is dependent on DNS, so will switching to another provider like DNSWatch end it, or is a proxy or VPN necessary?
