eWeek reports the nonprofit Electronic Frontier Foundation is warning users of Google’s new desktop update to not enable the “share across computers” feature.

“[We urge] consumers not to use this feature, because it will make their personal data more vulnerable to subpoenas from the government and possibly private litigants, while providing a convenient one-stop-shop for hackers who’ve obtained a user’s Google password,” the EFF said in a statement.
