Who google thinks you are

Google is one of the most powerful companies in the world, with access to all kinds of information about us. 

This includes what we search on the internet, what we buy and even who we are as people. The way that Google uses this information can be scary if you aren't aware of how it works or what it does with your data.

You can see who google thinks you are by going to the my activity tab in your google account

Here's what the page looks like:

You can see what information it has collected on you and how this information is used. You can also choose to delete some or all of these records.

What information does Google see about you?

Google is a very powerful company, and it knows everything about you. It knows where you are, what videos you watch and what comments you write. 

It can see all of this even if your computer or phone doesn't have any of its services installed.

Google's data collection is so thorough that it has become known as "creepy" or "creepy-but-true." The information collected by Google allows them to market targeted advertising at users based on their past behavior on websites like Facebook and YouTube (which themselves are owned by Google).

It's very easy for Google to know every single thing there is about you

Google knows what you're searching for, where you are and when. It's easy for them to know every single thing about you. The amount of information that Google has about us is scary!

Google knows when we are searching for things online (like "how do I clean my toilet"), what we're searching for ("a new computer"), and where we are located (in our own home or at work). 

They also know the videos that we watch, comments we write and even if someone else is visiting our profile page - this includes identifying their IP address so that they can target advertisements specifically towards those users' interests!

It's very easy for Google to know just about everything you do with your phone, tablet or desktop

You're probably using a mobile device at least some of the time when checking email or social media. Google knows this because it tracks all of your activity across all devices. 

The company also has access to information from apps on phones and tablets that can provide additional information about what people are doing online—such as which websites they've visited or whether they're shopping on Amazon or buying plane tickets through Expedia (or both).

If someone were interested in tracking how long you spend watching Netflix every day, they could do so by combining information from their knowledge of how long it takes users to watch an hour-long episode (which is usually around 45 minutes).

With data showing which programs tend to be watched most often during that period of time; this would allow them calculate exactly how much time there was left over after factoring in commercials etc., 

Making it easy for them estimate exactly how much money was spent during each session without needing any extra hardware!

The first thing that Google tracks is what you search for, or when using a Google-powered application, such as Chrome or Google Maps

Google also tracks your location by having its users share it with the company when they log into their accounts. This information can be shared even if you don't use any other services from them (like YouTube).

The third type of tracking occurs whenever you use an app that uses cookies to store personal data about your behavior on other sites like Facebook or Twitter

Cookies are small text files that websites put onto your computer when you visit them; these files usually contain some sort of identifier (such as an IP address) so that later on down the line, if someone looks up those same pages again in their browser history list (or elsewhere). 

Then they'll still know which ones were visited before—and therefore be able to identify who was visiting those pages at one point in time too!

Also, if you have your location enabled on your phone, it knows where you are and probably can even tell where you live

If you have location services enabled on your phone, Google knows where you are. It can also tell where you live and work, as well as go to school or church. 

If this sounds creepy to you, imagine what happens if someone has access to all of this information about other people?

If you have a YouTube account, it knows what videos you watch and what comments you write

If you have a YouTube account, it knows what videos you watch and what comments you write.

It also knows how many times in total each video has been watched by your friends and family members. The more often people watch a particular video, the higher its rating (which means more viewers).

If people haven't seen or heard about a certain channel before, they'll see "Recommended" at the top of their search results—and if they click on that suggestion, they'll be taken to another page where other suggested channels are listed as well!

This is just one example of how Google+ can help us get better at what we do every day: finding new ways to connect with others by sharing experiences around common interests or passions—whether those passions are music festivals or cooking shows!

If you have an Android device and have allowed it to be tracked (which is enabled by default), Google knows exactly where you’ve been over time

If you have an Android device, Google knows exactly where you've been over time.

The company uses location data to improve its services and sell advertising, but some users may be concerned about how this information is collected and used. 

Fortunately, there are steps that can be taken to limit the amount of information that Google collects on your activities.

By default (and unless disabled), the operating system will store a record of every place where users go within certain bounds—usually within 25 miles from their home address or office building—as well as information about how long they stay at each location. 

These records also include latitude/longitude coordinates for every point in space traveled by devices such as phones and laptops with GPS receivers installed (the latter being particularly useful for tracking).

If this sounds like something we'd all want our devices equipped with then fear not: there are ways around this feature!

It's sometimes scary how much information google knows about us!

  • Google knows everything about you.
  • Google knows everything about everyone else.
  • Google knows every single piece of data in the world, including yours and mine.


As you can see, Google is able to track a lot of information about us. It's not just the info that's in your search history or your location, but also what you're doing onscreen. And it can do this without our knowledge or consent!
