In context: Monday we reported how Google still tracks you even when you turn off Location History.
Google has now removed the misleading language on the Location History help page.
While turning "Location History" off may not work, users can outright delete Google's location data that it has collected.
The change comes three days after an Associated Press investigation revealed several Google apps and websites store user location - even if users turn off Location History. "When you turn off Location History for your Google Account, it's off for all devices associated with that Google Account". "With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored".
Worldwide, this privacy breach affects over 2 billion Android and iPhone devices that run Google services such as the Google search-engine, Google Maps or Android's Google operating system.
This is the same wording that appeared in the mobile phone version of the help page the same day as the story broke.
"We have been updating the explanatory language about Location History to make it more consistent and clear across our platforms and help centers", a spokesperson said in a statement.
The press agency's findings were confirmed by computer scientists from Princeton University but Google has denied them, saying that how it monitored users' whereabouts was made perfectly clear.
Why does it do that? It can charge advertisers more if they want to narrow ad delivery to people who've visited certain locations.
Another option is disabling "Web and App Activity" on devices; however, it also prevents other information from being stored like saving searches done through Google.
Critics say Google's insistence on tracking its users' locations stems from its drive to boost advertising revenue.
The AP investigation found that even with Location History turned off, Google stores user location when, for instance, the Google Maps app is opened, or when users conduct Google searches that aren't related to location.
From that help page: "If your Android usage & diagnostics setting is turned on, your device will still share information with Google, like battery level, how often you use your device and apps, and system errors".
We need a lot of work together and it is my responsibility first, to give this compact block and to give this attacking balance. That being said, Emery said he understands that players may be slow to adjust to a new philosophy and style of play.
