Bruce Schneier, a computer security expert, also an author of an essay on the subject of online privacy stated in his essay that using Webmail or an online document service like Google Docs can allow for more easily ripping off your information and besides such users risk having their privacy abused by authorities.

As an example, he said that according to the court rulings “police can search your data without a warrant, as long as others hold that data.” Consequently, as the police cannot read data on your computer they can access your email without a warrant from the backup tapes at your ISP.

Therefore, it is suggested that legal system developers “upgrade” their approach towards privacy to “a technology-aware” one, the one that doesn't use different standards for personal information when it's on a home computer, as opposed to when it's on a Google server.
