What Google and Facebook know about you

Google and Facebook know roughly all a smartphone owners does online or offline and store a information even if a owners deletes a information on a device, a technical consultant and web developer has created on his Twitter account.

“Want to weird yourself out?,” wrote Dylan Curran. “I’m gonna uncover only how most of your information a likes of Facebook and Google store about we though we even realising it.”

Here is a preference of points from Curran’s list:

  • Google stores your plcae (if we have it incited on) each time we spin on your phone, and we can see a timeline from a initial day we started regulating Google on your phone. https://www.google.com/maps/timeline
