How to Find Out What Google Knows About You

You Can Find Out Exactly What Google Knows About You

Are you living and breathing in this century? Then you probably use Google in some form. For the most part, the company offers tons of ways to simplify your life, from Google Maps to other hacks, but it's also definitely collecting lots of information on you. Thanks to a recent viral post from Imgur user XZorbys, here is a list of websites to check out and see what exactly Google knows about you. Most important part of this: only you can see this information and no one else, or so writes Google.

  • To see your search history: This will show you how much you search and what.
  • To understand what ads the company shows you and why: You can adjust these ad settings and turn them off.
  • To see what places Google knows you've gone to: Here, you can search by year, month, or day.
  • To go through every piece of information the company has about you: Check out all your data from every single Google product you use by exporting it.
  • To find out what Google products you're using: With this feature, you can see what products you've used and how much information (like docs or contacts) is in them.
  • To look at what your search history on YouTube is like: Look at how many times you've actually listened to "Sugar" by Maroon 5 by glancing at your search history.
  • To see what exactly you've given permission to: Ever just let some random website use your Google account to log in or do something else? You can see what those apps and sites are.

Hopefully this is a good reminder that you should do a privacy checkup with any and all of your social accounts.
