Google CEO Eric Schmidt in a CNBC interview has confirmed that he and his company comes under United States Patriot Act and is providing your private surfing data to the U.S authorities.

Eric Schmidt told CNBC Anchor Maria Bartiromo, on the cable network’s recent special “Inside the Mind of Google,” that people who have something to hide shouldn’t be doing things online that might potentially expose them if law enforcement seeks access to their search histories.

By turning the argument against the user with “just don’t do anything wrong and you’ll be OK,” Schmidt is essentially saying that we are now going to start spying on you.

In response to Google’s CEO downplayed consumers’ privacy concerns a Mozilla official today pointed Firefox users to the extension that adds Microsoft’s Bing to the list of the browser’s search engines.
