'Google it' - is the answer to pretty much everything right?
You can't doubt it's good, or that it's pretty clever, but I was fascinated to see what Google had stored on me over the years, if not a little scared!
I bet you’ll be amazed too..
OK, so let’s cover the basics of what Google knows about you:
Your voice is recorded,…'OK Google history'
Your search history – Obviously
Your location – Work, home, common routes etc
Your YouTube views and history - as such your hobbies, interests, political views, secret passions, desired areas of learning even?
You Apps – and what they access
Your devices – what device, when and where your logging on from..
In today's world, more than ever before, it's important to understand what data is out there, who's got it and whats being done with it. Even the ability to get a copy and delete yourself from their files.

If the thought of a single company having all that information in one place makes you uncomfortable, then not only can you stop Google from tracking your every move, but you can also delete all the previous data it has been collecting on you.
