An Associated Press investigation found that many Google services on\u00a0Android\u00a0devices and iPhones store your location data even if you\u2019ve used a privacy setting that says it will prevent Google from doing so. According to a new report published by APnews, Google\u2019 saves your location history even if you\u2019ve paused \u201cLocation History\u201d on mobile devices. Google states on its support pages that you can turn off Location History to prevent the company from storing the places you have been, but AP said this is not true. Disabling Location History on your devices, however, stops Google from tracking your movements for the purposes of creating a timeline and map of your travels. A separate feature, called \u201cWeb and App Activity,\u201d will continue to store time-stamped location information when you use certain Google apps or browse the web. For example, Google\u2019 stores a snapshot of where you are when you merely open its Maps app. Automatic daily weather updates on Android phones pinpoint roughly where you are. It is possible to delete this data, though. Users must remove their web and app location history one point at a time \u2013 or delete all of their stored history with Google. Google has also disputed that there is anything unclear in the way it handles its location history settings on Android. In a statement to AP, it confirmed there are several ways that Google may use location data \u2013 including: Location History, Web and App Activity, and through device-level location services. \u201cWe provide clear descriptions of these tools, and robust controls so people can turn them on or off, and delete their histories at any time,\u201d said Google.
