 Google Is Tracking You

On Monday, the Associated Press (AP) published an investigative report that reveals many of the services that Tech Giant Google offers to Android and iPhone users don’t actually stop recording their location even when their privacy settings are adjusted to shut these features off, And lawmakers are threatening to crack down on the company as a result.
If your privacy settings are adjusted to stop the location tracking, some smartphone apps simply can’t work if they don’t know your location. For example, how is Google Maps supposed to give you step-by-step directions if it doesn’t know where you are? However, Google’s apps don’t just access your real-time location - they also store your location history, recording your every move.
Even pausing the Location History, some Google apps automatically store time-stamped location data without permission, the "Associated Press" found in its investigation.
The Internet is a great source of information and knowledge. However, some of Tech Giant Companies like Google & Facebook collecting a lot of valuable information from their users as your private information as you browse the web. This has risked the privacy of millions. But now, things are beginning to change. People are now wondering how much information these sites collect and give out to third parties? Users have become more aware and want to learn more about what they can do to protect their privacy online.
When it comes to Google, the company says that its policies are clear and there are multiple ways in which Google may use location to improve your “experience.”

by the Google's support page: “You can turn off Location History at any time. With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored.”
According to WIRED, though, adjusting a phone’s Web & App Activity setting is complicated and not all that intuitive. Given Google’s recent push to drive ad revenue via location-aware tracking, it’s not hard to see how the company benefits from making it not so easy for users to host it.
