Cool But Creepy: Google Tracks (and Saves) Your Location History

10:05 AM by Metro Manila Directions · 70 comments






google location history
click photo to enlarge

Do you know that Google Location History tracks your every move via your smartphone? You have to be logged into your Google account and click here to access your history; and this tracking seems to be automatic on every Android phone.

Why is this good (advantage)?


click photo to enlarge

Google Location History can provide you historical information of your whereabouts, especially if you can't recall where you went on a specific day. For good or bad, the data is also archived. You can view where you went last week, last month, or even a year ago.














It can provide you an idea of how far you've traveled within the day and also when you usually move and when you don't (of course, part of it is when you are sleeping). Look, it also has a "play" button that shows how you travelled during that day. Isn't that amazing?

Why is this bad (disadvantage)?

It's pretty creepy. It's like someone watches over you day in, day out. Someone is tracking your movements and knows exactly where you are. We've been told to be careful in sharing our location on social media, and then someone else knows your location? If one knows your Google password, he/she can instantaneously know where you are.

On the contrary, can this be admissible later on as evidence in court to show where one is? But that might take some more proving or triangulation to prove (what if you don't have your phone with you)?

But don't worry, you can delete your information (for one day or all of it)

Author's note: I do noticed though that it is not accurate enough in the sense that it sometimes shows a nearby area as my location for a certain time. Or it shows that I moved when in fact I didn't. Maybe the cell towers had a hard time triangulating my location and pointed to the wrong area.
