Ever wonder what Google tracks from your online searches?

> Find out here – myactivity.google.com


Did you know Google tracks you via your phone?

> Find out where you have been - myactivity.google.com

Want Google to stop tracking you?

• Open Google Maps on iPhone or Android.
• Tap the menu bar on the top-left of the app.
• Choose “Your Timeline.”
• Tap the three dots on the top-right of the screen.
• Choose “Settings and privacy.”
• Select “Automatically delete location history.”
• Change the setting from “Keep until I delete manually” to “Keep for 18 months” or “Keep for 3 months.”


Who needs Big Brother when Google is doing the job. Then again, some folks just love to post everything there is to know about themselves on Social Media including their home location, pictures of themselves and family members, pets, valuables and belongings, vehicles, work, vacation and travel schedules, etc., etc.

Indeed. There is beaucoup of info on you out there already. No point in making it easier on the powers that be. My sister went into Whole Foods for a cup of coffee + that evening she got an online request asking her about the service, etc. at Whole Foods. She was seriously pissed + wondered how they got her information. I asked her if she paid with a credit card + when she said yes, I told her,"there you go."


Never mistake motion for action.

PSA No. 2 - If you see a deposit from Google in your bank account for, say, $0.35; you are being phished. Immediately place a restriction on your bank account.

Duck Duck is okay but there are many that may be better and also do not track you.

I believe the idea of privacy in the age of the Internet and the digital world is wishful thinking...

Between the two, your IP and cell carrier track everywhere you go and everything you do online. And there is no way to control or flush that metadata.

Me too. Sometimes 2 or 3 a day, different pitch. I reply to the call, tell them I never had a google listing, I'm retired and will never have a listing. Does no good, they start calling in a couple of weeks.

I get at least 12 telemarketer calls a day. Chaps my ass. Does anyone REALLY buy anything from these people? Hell, everyone you talk to hates them.
