Is Google Still Following You?

November 13, 2018

 

Remember when there was a big scare about Google sharing your information? Did it creep you out? Were you one of the people that turned off that nifty tracking setting under notifications? Guess what? That did absolutely nothing. 

 

Last week, the AP published an investigation detailing the ways that Google still tracks, stores, and shares your information. That’s right. If you own an android phone or use Google maps in iOS, the tech behemoth still knows your every move. But they don’t have to. Deep in the bowels of your settings, lies the answer to turning off your tracking. For real this time. Here’s how. 

 

  1. Whether you’re using iOS, Android, or your computer, open your browser. After you sign in to your google account from your browser, head to your Account. This will be located in the drop down of the upper right-hand corner. 

     

     

     

  2. Locate Personal Info & Privacy. Within this category, toward the bottom, clock Go to My Activity.

 

​​

 3.   On the left, there should be a navigation bar. Click Activity Controls

 

 

 4.   The next screen will be called Web & App Activity. Go ahead and toggle that switch to off. A popup will appear telling you that you will decrease your personalization by turning off this feature. But hey, that’s sort of the point, isn’t it? 

 

 

 

Google safely, friends. And by safely, we mean privately.
