Google Tracks Your Location

Google has updated the help page for its Location History feature to acknowledge the fact that the company still tracks users through use of its services like Google Maps, weather updates, and browser searches, according to a report from the Associated Press.

As noted by the AP, the help page for the Location History setting has been updated to clarify that;

“This setting does not affect other location services on your device,” and that “some location data may be saved as part of your activity on other services, like Search and Maps.”

Location History toggle won’t actually stop Google from tracking you, users can turn that off by disabling the “Web and App Activity” option (which is enabled by default). Turn it off, and Google won’t be able to store and track your Maps data and browser searches for location anymore.
