Here is how Google Maps tracks your every move | Popular Mechanics

Google Maps keeps a detailed history of your movements, which might feel extremely creepy (like you have a robotic stalker), however, it happens regardless of whether you’re aware or not.

Not everyone is comfortable with Google keeping their information for this long, so here is how you can change the settings to limit how long this information is stored:

  • Open Google Maps on iPhone or Android.
  • Tap the menu bar on the top-left of the app.
  • Choose “Your Timeline.”
  • Tap the three dots on the top-right of the screen.
  • Choose “Settings and privacy.”
  • Select “Automatically delete location history.”
  • Change the setting from “Keep until I delete manually” to “Keep for 18 months” or “Keep for 3 months.”

Finally, in an effort that should have happened years ago, Google has finally re-added the ability to take notes and make lists via Google Assistant on your Google Home speakers, Nest speakers, Chromebooks, or phones.

Gmail will now let you attach emails to your emails | The Verge

The mailing system will soon allow its users to send emails as attachments without having to forward or download them first. Or as Google puts it, “You can now attach emails to other emails in Gmail.”

Fervent emailers can attach as many emails, which will appear as an .eml file, as they like. Users who love to have multiple tabs open may also be pleased to hear that the attachment will open in a new window.
