I recently started listening to a podcast called “To Live and Die in LA,” and the host just talked about this: Google is literally tracking your every move, all the time! Where you are, how long you’re there, and more. Google is better than any private eye in knowing what you’ve been up to and where you’ve been. “It’s a creepy level of detail,” says CNBC’s Todd Haselton.
Thankfully you can delete the tracking logs, but it will require a little work.
First step is to open their Privacy Checkup and scroll down to Manage Location History from the Location History section. You’ll see a map of each place you’ve visited. Turn that off and make sure to delete the history.
Then hit up the Web and App Activity tracker section, turning that feature off as well to prevent Google’s other apps from keeping tabs on your whereabouts.
The man is always watching folks…
To check out the podcast, head to To Live and Die in LA. I HIGHLY recommend it. This week left us up in the air, and I can’t wait for the next episode!
