In other News ; Google Maps has a new feature that knows exactly where you've been

In the latest sign that technology knows us even better than we know ourselves, Google has unveiled Your Timeline; a feature in Maps that lets users look back on their movements in days gone by.

And it’s startlingly accurate – having full logs of exactly where you walked/drove/ran/moved on a certain day.
First things first before you get too alarmed though – the feature only works if you have opted-in to sharing your location with Google, and then use Google Maps on your phone on a regular basis. Days where you didn’t use Maps are predominantly blank. All the information you see is also only accessible to you (and Google), so you shouldn’t fear the world finding out your entire daily routine.

Google announced that the feature is still rolling out, but many users are already able to access it on Android and desktop.
As well as listing the places you’ve been, in some cases there are routes taken as well – in essence your entire day’s movements mapped out, as well as pinpointing all the various places you’ve been.

and location services

iOS has had this feature for many years now. Phone user can opt in/out.

Its not a new feature. Bedn there for years. Watu ndio hawajui

It was already there kitambo. Been using it for years. It’s called Google Location History

You can find in dubai. They cost about 5000.

Google is known to have backdoors in it’s systems to allow governments to access this information, basically privacy doesn’t exist these days, how are you sure that the opt out capability actually prevents them from keeping track of you, or is it a cosmetic feature to keep the consumer happy and give them a false sense of security.

Exactly. Your location is tracked whether you opt out or not. When you opt out, your simply telling them that you don’t want them to show you the info they already have about you…
