It’s a well-known fact: Google knows everything. Anything you do or post online can be tracked by the world’s biggest search engine, and you can’t hide it. Through the small files known as ‘cookies’, Google traces what you are searching online as well as when you are surfing the net so that it offers you the most accurate information based on your interests.
This incredibly useful infographic from Conosco confirms that Google is spying on you. It details the kind of data the search engine has access to, and explains how it essentially processes the information that you give online and connects the dots so as to create an image around your name.
So, apart from your age, sex, and location, Google knows what you do online, who you talk to, and how you spend your money. Creepy, isn’t it?
