Where you go, Google goes.
If you have location services turned on, then Google Maps has keeps track of every step you (and your smartphone) take.
Your Google Timeline, introduced last year, can be a true walk down memory lane. But it can also lead straight to you and leave the door to your privacy wide open.
With Timeline, not only can Google Maps show you where you’re going, but where you’ve been.
There might also be photographic evidence since Timeline syncs with any shots uploaded to Google Photos.
If you’ve turned on location services, Google is constantly pinging your phone from cell towers and Wi-Fi and using GPS to see where you are.
If this all seems less helpful and more harmful, you can remove your location history. And tell Google to quit it already and stop following you.
