So it is no longer news that Google is listening to us. Have you ever wondered why things you talk about or places you’ll like to visit suddenly pop up as Ads on your social media feed? That is Google
Google has a tab on everyone of us from the things we search and the places we have been to with our phones. According to the Independent, “The recordings can function as a kind of diary, reminding you of the various places and situations that you and your phone have been in. But it’s also a reminder of just how much information is collected about you, and how intimate that information can be.
You’ll see more if you’ve an Android phone, which can be activated at any time just by saying “OK, Google”. But you may well also have recordings on there whatever devices you’ve interacted with Google using.”
The good thing is you can turn it off, the bad thing is what is your phone without Google?
To stop Google from listening to you will have to stop using virtual assistant, and Google search and doesn’t that render your phone useless?
However you can still delete the tabs Google has on you by going to the history page, clicking the check box on the left and then move back to the top of the page and select “delete”. If you want to get rid of everything, click on “More” and select “delete options” and then “Advanced” and click through until you clear out all the files.
