Google will track you and your kids every movement, like it or not.

So you have switched off Google location history on your  kids phone to maintain their privacy. But, it seems like Google is still tracking you and your kids  every movement. This is being done while you still use some of Google other services such as Search and Weather.

A report from Associated Press showed that Google Maps, Weather ,and  Search is still tracking your location for purposes such as advertisement. On Google’s website it is stated that “You can turn off Google Location History at any time. With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored.”  However, an investigation by AP shows that this is untrue.

Watch the video below to see how Google is violating your privacy:
