This website reveals everything Google knows about YOU – and it's absolutely terrifying
GOOGLE tracks an awful lot of data related to you but it has a website where you can see this data for yourself.
All you need to do is follow a few simple steps and be prepared to see a terrifyingly detailed record of your web browsing habits and day-to-day life.
How to find out what Google knows about you
To see the data that Google has collected about you, you first need to open to your Google Account by clicking on your profile picture.
Then, select "Manage your Google Account".
Next, click "Data & personalization".
Here you'll be able to scroll through your past online activites.
Including "Youtube watch and search history" and a "Maps timeline".
If you scroll further down the page you'll see an option to "Download or delete your data".
Google explains the steps you need on its 'Get a summary of data in your Google Account' webpage.
How to stop Google storing your activity
It is possible to stop Google from storing so much info in the future.
Go back to "Data and privacy", "My Activity" and under "Web & App activity" you should see a blue toggle.
Switch it off.
You can also switch off your "Location History" and "YouTube History".
