Microsoft keeps attacking Google on a weekly basis, so the company rolled out one more video to show users that Gmail is actually infringing users’ privacy by looking into every mail to deliver relevant ads.

Basically, Microsoft claims that the Mountain View-based search company is opening every single email that lands in your inbox and scans the content in order to show relevant ads while reading messages.

“Google goes through every Gmail that's sent or received, looking for keywords so they can target Gmail users with paid ads. And there's no way to opt out of this invasion of your privacy. Watch the video to see how you get Scroogled,” Microsoft said when it relaunched the Scroogled campaign earlier this month.

Surprisingly, Google is yet to issue a statement on the matter, so Microsoft can continue encouraging users to make the move to Outlook.com with no opposition coming from Mountain View.
