 Android one hundred and one: How to stop location monitoring

Location monitoring can be very on hand — it’s convenient when an app can tell you, say, whether the close to restaurants or gasoline stations is, however, a privacy issue. Do you want all of your wanderings registered by using Google? Do you understand that Mark Zuckerberg’s minions always recognize where you are? (Well, not that Mark Zuckerberg has minions, but you realize what I mean.)

In this text, we’ll check how to stop location tracking on your Android phone and how to delete your region records from your OS and some of your favorite apps. As always, observe that Android variations can vary, and many manufacturers use overlays as nicely, which could exchange the locations of various commands — but they must be similar enough for you if you want to discover your way. I’ve used a Pixel 3 XL walking Android 9 for those commands.

Stop Google from monitoring your length.

You probably realize that Google can track your region and actions through its Google Maps app. But you can no longer understand that your Android phone tracks your movements and sports through several other built-in apps. If you, without a doubt, don’t need your cellphone to be following any of your activities and marks, there is a way to show monitoring off for all (nicely, maximum) of them. You want to be conscious that you’re likely to render many of your apps (including trip-share apps, weather apps, and, of direction, mapping apps) much less usable. Or, in some instances, completely unusable.


  • Stop Google tracking using a browser.
  • Go to https://myactivity.Google.Com/.
  • Select “Activity Controls,” which is observed in the left-hand menu.
  • Scroll down the various sports and pick out any you’d like to turn off.

This may also take some time, especially if you want to study what you’ll affect. Activities indexed that would reveal your region encompass “Web & App Activity” (which covers anything you’ve achieved on Google apps and offerings) and “Location History” (in which you’ve gone together with your tool). You also can delete “Device Information” (information about contacts, calendars, and so on.), “Voice & Audio Activity,” “YouTube Search History,” and “YouTube Watch History.” You’ve avoided any more records from being accumulated. But now, you may need to delete all or some of the already collected statistics.
Return to the My Activity page and click “Delete activity by” in the left-hand menu.

You can clear out your information to delete pastimes by the app, keyword, or date. Stop Google monitoring on an Android tool. Go to Settings. Find “Accounts” and tap on Google. If multiple accounts are indexed, tap on the only one you want to trade. Tap on “Google Account.” Scroll down to “Manage your statistics & personalization” and pick it. Look under “Activity controls.” Here, as with the browser version, you could flip off or pause monitoring various activities. If you need more granular control of your sports, you can scroll down and choose “Manage your interest controls.” To delete your pastime facts, appear on that similar web page for “My Activity.” Tap on it to look at your saved data. In each category, tap on the three dots on the proper side to delete a few or all of the information.
