THESE recordings can be pretty scary, but are ultimately the logical consequence of using an Android smartphone with all Google services / functions activated. If we take a look at the so-called web and app activities from our own Google account, we see quite a few details about our everyday life with the Android smartphone. This is not a new finding, but perhaps not all Android users were aware of it.
If you really have all the oh-so-practical Google tools and functions active, a lot of data appears in their logs. Example: In order to be able to control our “digital well-being”, Google must also evaluate our usage behavior accordingly. This requires a log of when and which apps we use. Google records this information in detail and could use it to reconstruct our everyday mobile life quite well.
The Android app activities naturally include all platforms, including Android TV and Google TV. When did we even turn on the device, which streaming apps used. Google collects all this information and neatly lists it for our Google accounts. After all, this data can be viewed and is therefore transparent.
Activities log is detailed and complete
Further details show the times at which we opened the respective apps. On the one hand, that’s very interesting, but on the other, it’s also pretty transparent. You absolutely have to get this point in your head. Google, Facebook, Amazon and Co. make us transparent, at least for their own purposes. In advance, the companies sell us the collected data in the form of practical functions such as the aforementioned digital wellbeing for Android.
Perhaps not every practical smartphone function has to be active?
