Google Remembers

“Data helps make Google services more useful for you. Sign in to review and manage your activity, including things which you’ve searched for, websites that you’ve visited and videos that you’ve watched.”

If you’ve ever signed in to your Google account on your browser and not logged out, I’ve got some news for you.

By not logging out of your account, Google has tracked your entire activity log for your current browsing session and any future session – which includes;

  • Things you search for
  • Websites you visit
  • Videos you watch
  • Ads you click on
  • Your location
  • Device information
  • IP address and cookie data
  • Emails you send and receive on Gmail
  • Contacts
  • Calendar events
  • Photos and videos you upload
  • Docs, Sheets, and Slides on Drive

In the video, I quickly explore exactly what Google has collected from me. I dare you to look too.

    Really dig the video dude; however, I’m not sure I have a massive problem with Google having all my information, my history etc. Like sure it’d be better if they didn’t have the ability to see what I do all the time but to be honest they provide me with convenient services I don’t have the funds to pay for at the moment and are able to tailor advertisements to my own interests which I prefer over mass media advertisements.

    Video was awesome! I don’t even want to know the weird stuff I’ve googled over the years. Will definitely be logging out more often now. Check out this article if you want a more in-depth account of how Google makes money from our data: http://bit.ly/2iROSbc
