How Google Tracks You
Privacy has become a big phenomena in a society where everyone is overexposed. The majority of us value our privacy and don't want people to pry into our personal lives. Being a full extrovert is impossible. But, in today's society, is it possible? Have you ever considered that we are being tracked at all times?
Since its establishment in 1998, Google has been the largest and most used search engine. It's difficult to picture a life without the use of Google's various apps and services. We rely on it and put our trust in it since we entrust a major percentage of our data to it. Google states that it does not sell our personal information to third parties. But, first and foremost, did you realize how much data Google has on its users?
Google keeps track of every activity you take on the internet using any of its devices or services. Google's Android operating system is one of the most popular, with over 2.5 billion users globally. Google has access to all of a person's personal information. It keeps track of where you go, what you buy, what you look for on the internet, what you email about, and much more. By checking My Activity, you will be able to see all of the things you do on the internet. On your Android phone, you can view your Google and YouTube searches, applications you've downloaded, and even the number of times you've accessed a given app. Isn't it terrifying?
How it collects the information?
Once you connect in to Google, your account is linked to all of your smart devices. Then it begins to collect data and personalize it based on your choices. It collects information about your hotel reservations, travel bookings, online streaming service subscriptions, Google Pay payments, and other transactions. It may also provide a full analysis of your activities over the previous weeks at predetermined times.
Is our data safe with Google?
As previously stated, Google claims that no information is disclosed and that it is exclusively utilized to make your life simpler. In some ways, this is correct. You will get alerted about the things that are most important to you. You may always refuse to provide any information, but this may limit your ability to use some applications and services. Almost everything in today's world is dependent on the internet and its resources. We must submit specific information in order to make the most use of these services. Remember that the decision to reveal or not disclose personal information is always yours. So keep this in mind and consider twice before granting access to your sensitive information.
