Ever wonder what Google knows about you? In fact, this search engine knows everything about you.
Yes, especially if you use most Google apps like Android, Gmail, Drive, Google Maps, YouTube, Chrome browser and above all Google search.
Even if you keep location history off on your device, Google usually stores the location of such users, as an IP address is created depending on the location when the Internet is connected to any device. ۔
Smartphones are also connected to mobile towers so mobile operators know your general location all the time.
The good news, however, is that you can prevent Google from monitoring you 7 hours a day, 7 days a week.
How to avoid Google tracking?
Open the Google website on any browser on your computer and sign in.
After signing in, click on your account’s profile picture on the top right corner of the page and click Manage Your Google Account in the drop-down menu, then the page will open in a separate tab.
There in the Privacy and Personalization box, select Manage Your Data and Personalization.
Then scroll down to Activity Controls and go to Manage Your Activity Controls.
There you will see a box called Web & App Activity, which you can switch off.
Doing so will result in a warning from Google that doing so will deprive it of the ability to personalize multiple services, however click on Pause.
What change will that make?
Turning this setting off will prevent Google from storing location markers and will not be able to collect details from company sources or other activity.
Turning off the settings not only makes the current location private but also prevents the company from accessing your IP address and other sensitive details.
Keep in mind that for certain features like Google Maps, the company will need access to your location, but turning that setting off will prevent you from storing activity details.
