Google Maps Tracks and Stores Location Data – Even When your Location Detection is Turned-off

with one comment

This is scary.

Apparently, Google Maps has been tracking and storing all my locations over last several months even when my location detection is turn-off and there is a neat little visualization of all your locations provided by Google itself.

All you need to do is log in with the same account you use on your phone, and the record of everywhere you’ve been for the last day to month will erupt across your screen like chicken pox.
