Google has been listening to your conversations in the entire time, and you just knew it by now. And obviously would love to remove that since it already bypassed your privacy. Here’s how:
Have you ever wondered how the ads you see on your social media while swiping up and down has been so on point with your desire? And when you see it, you feel that it’s like magic. At the moment, your phone became just like a fairy-godmother showing and answering your heart desires. Little did you know that Google has been secretly recording and saving everything we searched online. By doing this, they will be able to sell some specific ads.
Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing, Google launched a new portal for all Google account-related activities. It’s the location you can manage your privacy settings, see what you’ve searched for, and where Google has logged your location. These archives even include a section for voice searches, which is unnerving.
Here’s how to find and delete your recordings
- Log into history.google.com
- Click on the hamburger icon on the top left of the page
- Go to “Voice & Audio Activity”
- Scroll through your list to see all the silly things there is audio proof of you asking about
- Click on one square to select a recording to delete
- Stop using the voice function if you don’t want to listen to yourself again
When confronted with the issue, Google wasn’t able to comment on the reason why they are keeping the actual voice recordings of our searches. If it’s for advertising purposes, you’d think the text of the searches would have sufficed.
