Every Step You Take
Google’s watching you.
Go toÂ https://maps.google.com/locationhistory/b/0/ while logged into any google app like g-mail. Turn back the calendar and follow your tracks anywhere your phone went on any given day.
You can also turn on timestamps for any given timeÂ after you left home with your phone turned on and Google maps active.
And you think Google doesn’t use this information, or that they wouldn’t give your geographic data pointsÂ up in a heartbeat with the right kind of ‘national security’ claims?
This map shows our travels one day while in Mississippi last month.
Is this something the average user would ever find useful? Maybe. If you have teenagers, send them out with YOUR phone, then check where they went and when. Creepy.
You can turn this off. Thought you’d want to know.
