How much does Google know about you?

What Google knows

We all know that Google collects data and uses it to sell adverts. But just how well does Google know you?

VPN service comparison site TheBestVPN has created a full guide to how the corporation tracks you and what it does with the information.

Google's apps give the company a wealth of information on you, from the personal details that make up who you are, to your interests, your past travels, and your future goals. But this is more than just facts and figures. Thanks to facial recognition in Google photos, the search giant probably has a pretty good idea of what you look like. And if you’ve used voice commands with an Android device or Google Home device it knows what you sound like too. If you use Google Fit it also has a good idea of how healthy you are.

This is in addition to tracking your movements, knowing who you communicate with, the types of books, movies and food you like, where you shop, and more.

You can find out what Google knows, where it gets the data from, and see tips on adjusting your privacy settings to limit how much data Google can collect, in the infographic below.
