After the recent fiasco surrounding location tracking by Google, the company has updated it’s website for Location History feature and mentions that it still tracks users through use of its services like Google Maps, weather updates, and browser searches.
The updated help page says “This setting does not affect other location services on your device. Some location data may be saved as part of your activity on other services, like Search and Maps.”
User can disable the location tracking by heading on to ‘Web and App Activity’ option under settings and turning it of. This way Google won’t be able to store the Maps data anymore.
