Google Maps Has Been Tracking Your Every Move, and There’s a Website to Prove It

Thanks to Ed Komarek at Extraterrestrial Cultural Center on Facebook.

This is slick, isn’t it? Try it!

Was there any doubt? Big Brother is EVERYWHERE. 

It’s a cool place to get a snapshot of your life, but that little anomaly the writer shares… curious indeed.

When I go to the website it shows my gmail address at the top right, but tells me I have no location history. I am EVER SO GLAD I don’t have a smart phone, and ignored all those not-so-subtle little pushes by Google to get me to provide my cell number.

The rest of you—have at ‘er! ~ BP

Remember that scene in Minority Report, where Tom Cruise is on the run from the law, but is unable to avoid detection because everywhere he goes there are constant retina scans feeding his location back to a central database? That’s tomorrow. Today, Google is tracking wherever your smartphone goes, and putting a neat red dot on a map to mark the occasion.

You can find that map here. 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.

We all know that no matter what ‘privacy’ settings you may try and implement, our information is all being collected and stored somewhere. That knowledge sits in the back of our minds, and is easy to drown out by shoving in some headphones and watching Adventure Time on repeat until everything stops being 1984.  But it’s a sharp jolt back to reality when you see a two dimensional image marking your daily commute with occasional detours to the cinema or a friend’s house.

Looking at mine, I realised that a) I live my life in a very small radius, and b) there are places on my map that I don’t remember going. One of them I’ve apparently visited three times on different days. Once whilst “Biking” and twice while “Stationary”. All at times I wouldn’t usually be awake. I’m not sure what’s happening on Wood Street in North Melbourne, or why my phone apparently travels there without me, but I’m not going to rule out secret alien conspiracies.

This never happened. UNLESS IT DID.

This never happened. UNLESS IT DID.

Apparently this record only happens if you have ‘location services’ switched on in your phone; if you do and you’re finding you have no data, then it means that either you don’t exist or you’ve beaten the system. If it’s the latter, please teach me your ways; I know for a fact that I switched my phone’s location detection off, but apparently it somehow got switched back on.

Oh well. Perhaps this month I’ll take some inspiration from the runner who used Nike+ draw dicks – except this time when the dots are joined, they’ll just form a huge, unblinking eye. With occasional side trips to Wood Street.

    My location setting is off on my cell and I have no location history on google. Maybe it’s because I also stopped using the facebook app on my phone and uninstalled all updates to the app which likely voided any permissions I gave the app when I did use it. I also deleted the facebook messenger app that requires the same ridiculous permissions the facebook app itself requires. If anything says I have to allow it to input contact data, access my camera, etc……it ain’t getting used by this girl.

    Now I only access facebook on my phone via my web app that directly accesses the facebook mobile site as if my cell were a pc instead of a phone.

    I’m not tech nerd either I just seem to have a natural ability to remain in stealth mode 😉 Hope this helps.

    Simply amazing:)!
    That reminds me of the “free credit score ” 😉 You give them all this information and they got you ! Junk mail deluxe and I know one lady that got hit with a debt , she did not owe . What an absolute proving of the “dumbing down concept” , because you will have voluntarily given them what they need, to track you ;).
    Your information :(.
    I feel like a parent again,when I say Never talk to STRANGERS ;),any-all strangers;). PAY Attention !!! ,iTIs one of the few things left, that are really worth the price :). Promise,trust nun suspect all ;).See?
    OMG!!! weren’t eWe paying attention ?

    • pearler… we don’t need to use those free credit score offers. We are permitted to get our credit score for free, once every quarter from the three main credit companies, so, if you absolutely have to know what your score is, you contact each one once a year and it costs nothing.

      I use Credit Karma, and I get no spam; just an occasional email saying I haven’t visited for awhile. There’s some interesting info on their website, too.

    iPhone does it too. It’s part of theft prevention and phone recovery. (Find My Phone, Device Manager, etc.) You can opt out of these services. For Android, turn off “Location” in settings.
    You can delete your location history at any time by going to the Google website provided.
    Also, Location services are needed for GPS. If you use your phone for navigation, your phone will track your location.
    EVERY GPS device, TomTom, Garmin, Magellan, etc., tracks and records your location. That’s why they tell you to enter a nearby intersection or landmark instead of your real address as “home”.
    It’s up to consumers to decide how much of this information that are comfortable with sharing.

    We are led to believe that the earth is round, however on previous blog pots recently i have read that we actually reside on a platform type rock or something. the map that google shows from the link the OP posted clearly shows that what we live on is flat dropped a bit of a hint of a big lie maybe LOL

    • DM… Yes, ‘Spock’ and other readers of this blog shared several links pertaining to Earth being flat. When it’s as simple as using a fish-eye lens, it’s easy to deceive us.

      I haven’t even looked at these yet—but they are now at the top of my viewing list, so thank you so much, Spock.

      Here are some more “flat earth” clips that are very interesting :

      and how about this :

    I had a cell phone for awhile, but I did not appreciate the invasion of privacy. People could contact me 24-7, I found that disturbing.
    People might not remember, but there was a time when societies enjoyed genuine privacy.I didn’t even the trust the word “cell” phone.It was a prelude for the truth of the situation. The cabal loves to play word games along with mind games.
    I tried facebook, but was appalled as it seemed very invasive and disingenuous. Although I understand some people use facebook for social awareness purposes, other than the vain glory of the me, me, me, meme. Thanks for your hard work, BP. It is much appreciated!
