Google Helps Police Identify Devices Close to Crime Scenes Using Location Data

A function that’s hidden away on your Google account could be tracking your every move if you haven’t turned it off.

Location History is a list of places you’ve been to, tracked by the GPS on your smartphone and collated by Google.So that means that every trip you’ve made to work, visit to your mums and even every date you’ve been on could be stored by Google, and the information can go back for years.

It’s no secret that Google tracks you everywhere, even when you keep Google’s Location History feature disabled. As revealed by an Associated Press investigation in 2018 , other Google apps like Maps or daily weather update service on Android allows the tech giant to continuously collect your precise latitude and longitude.
