Google has become almost indispensable in our modern lives and you may be well aware the search giant is tracking and recording everything you use it for. But did you know you can see all this information for yourself? And, more importantly, switch it off. There are a few steps to follow, but it means you can decide how much of your personal data the company gets to use. Whether it's serving personalised adverts or offering up things like local restaurants or sports scores, there are some benefits to letting companies like Google, Facebook and Apple know what your interests are.
To see everything you've been using Google for, you'll first need to sign in to your account. Once you're up and running, go to history.google.com/history . This is your activity page and will display all the information about what you've been up to on Google's services - this includes Maps searches and YouTube videos you've watched.
