Google collects a lot of your personal data in order to target ads and improve your experience.
You might be surprised by how much Google knows about you.
Here are the things that Google knows about you
location: Google tapes your location if we have switched on your location. This happens every time we switch on our phone. It creates a timeline of all our locations since the first day we started our phone.
all your searches: Dylan claims that Google stores all our search history across all devices that we’ve used so far. This data is stored in a separate database by Google so clearing search history or phone history is of no help. We need to go through each device and delete everything to get rid of it.
Google uses personal data to create ad profiles:Google uses our information like age, gender, hobbies, income etc to create an ad profile.
every app or extension we use: Google stores all the app including third-party apps like Facebook or Twitter and extensions that we use in its database. It stores all the information related to these apps such as how often we use it, when do we use it and in which country do we use it.
YouTube search history:Google stores and analyses all your YouTube videos so they know our political preferences, religious beliefs, our personality type, and much more.
Google takeout document: Like Facebook, Google also offers an option to download all the data that it stores of us. This takeout document contains all our emails, bookmarks, contacts, Google drive files, products you’ve brought from Google, all the images you have downloaded.
Google calendar document contains information about all our events that we added and also the time of the event. The Google Drive documents contain all our files, even the deleted ones.
