Google recently enhanced its search engine functionality so that a user’s personal information from Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google+ are utilized to generate user-specific answers to personal questions such as “When is my flight leaving?” or “What time is my reservation?” The feature is available on any device on which Google search is available. Although Google claims this feature to be their most innovative yet, it is likely to be in violation of the Federal Wiretap Act.
Since the feature is fairly new, it has not yet been subject many complaints. But, in September 2013, a federal judge in California allowed a consolidated wiretapping action to proceed against Google in conjunction with their previous data collecting policies from Gmail accounts. In this ongoing case, plaintiffs allege that Google “intentionally intercepted, read and acquired content” from their emails, for the purposes of targeted advertising.
Since Google’s new search feature furthers the amount of intrusion into the users’ private information, the company may have subjected itself to increased liability, based on the outcome of this ongoing case.

 Eugene Agichtein et al., Improving Web Search Ranking by Incorporating User Behavior Information, SIGIR ’06 19, available at http://web.cs.dal.ca/~anwar/ir/review/grads.pdf (last visited Oct. 23, 2013) User behavior data consists of scrolling time in each search term, dwelling time on each link and reformulation patterns of search terms until the user gets the desired result.

A search for a name would return a result of someone that is already in the user’s social network, rather than many strangers with the same name.
