The business model of Google is based on the collection of user data from different sources so that the most suitable advertising content can be displayed to the users. Therefore the search engine creates a profile from the collected data. In the meantime, this data does not only come from the Google search engine, but countless services such as Youtube, Google Ads, Google Analytics and, above all, Android and apps help Google to know enough about us.
In the meantime, Google has become more transparent - especially as a result of pressure from the European Union - and now shows more clearly which user information is stored on the company server. This link takes you to your data.
Overview of all your activities
It no longer matters how you use Google's products, Google's obsession with collecting and the information about your activities can be found in this structured overview. Regardless of whether you use your Andriod smartphone, Gmail or the Chrome web browser, here you can find out what you have done with which app, which websites you have visited, which articles you have read and when. Practically everything that Google learns about you is shown: which places you visit, which pages you are on, which videos you watch and what you search for on Google.
Google knows exactly how often you use WhatsApp and which additional programs are active in the background.
In the meantime, Google gives you the opportunity to decide to what extent and, above all, which activity data should be stored. The control center offers the option of switching off location tracking so that the search engine no longer saves your location or tracks your search behavior.
