Naiv wie ich bin, dachte ich immer, wenn ich GPS deaktiviere weiss niemand wo ich mich aufhalte ;-)

Die Forscher in Princeton wissen es besser. Unglaublich was mit den Sensordaten inzwischen alles machbar ist.

Google weiß mehr über mich als ich selbst, wie mir meine location history timeline aus 2014 schmerzhaft vor Augen führt.

If, like most people, you thought Google stopped tracking your location once you turned off Location History in your account settings, you were wrong. According to an AP investigation, even if you disable Location History, the search giant still tracks you every time you open Google Maps, get certain automatic weather updates, or search for things in your browser. There's a way to stop it—but it takes some digging.
The problem affects anyone with an Android phone and iPhone users running Google Maps on their devices, according to the AP report, which researchers at Princeton University verified. That's more than two billion people.
The Google support page for managing and deleting your Location History says that once you turn it off, "the places you go are no longer stored. When you turn off Location History for your Google Account, it's off for all devices associated with that Google Account." The AP's investigation found that's not true. In fact, turning off your Location History only stops Google from creating a timeline of your location that you can view. Some apps will still track you and store time-stamped location data from your devices.
