This Is Exactly How Much Information Google Has on You

And why you’ll probably never want to use the internet again

Following Facebook's Cambridge Analytica fiasco, people are starting to question just exactly how much information tech giants have on them and where it is stored.

A number of people have started to download their data and share it on social media, and that's where tech consultant Dylan Curran comes in. He took to Twitter to give a blow-by-blow account of what Google are storing on you and where to find it.

Sure, you probably expected Google to keep all of your shameful search history stored away in some cloudbut did you realize the search engine giant also knows how long it takes you to get to work everyday, right down to the steps you’ve taken?

Don't worry, there's more.

Seeing as your location usually pops up when you are using Google, it might not be much of a surprise that your location is logged.

But we bet you weren't expecting to see it in map form, complete with travel times.


Right down to the steps...

Again, search history you probably expected...

But you probably never gave your YouTube history a second thought - especially those drunken worm holes you’ve ended up going down at 2 a.m.

But that’s not the only thing. How about all the apps you use? Who you are talking to? And when you head off to bed?

All your emails, whether you have deleted them or not.

Oh and all your files, whether you have deleted them or not.

And let’s not forget the advertising profile Google has built using all your information.

Safe to say, Google has a fair amount of data on you.

Curious? You can download your data here.
