Track your moment history

    If you want to see what your history has, go to here: https://maps.google.com/locationhistory/b/0/ and Login with your gmail username / password

    If you have an iphone with google maps installed (prior to version 3.2.1), then you can access the same information.

    More information on this is here: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/4388034?hl=en


    You can see on google maps EVERYWHERE you've ever went. I saw an article today while searching for videos, figured I'd try it myself. Sure enough, I can track my movements 24/7 for the last several years. Worst part is, so can the police and anyone else that has your login info.

    Thats crazy. Was able to see my route across Europe in 2012. Also when I hid that body.

    No location history for me

    A lot of people would be unaware of how easy it is to be tracked.

    That's mad... scary and interesting!
    Though even just looking at today, it is showing up a place or two where I just didn't go! :eek:

    You may not have been there but it could be picking up the signal from the closest mobile antennae that your phone connected to.

    That's what I assumed... because to get to where it said I was, via the route it said I took, would be impossible without a boat :D
    I suppose it illustrates that this could *possibly* get someone in trouble!

    Nope, I wasn't referring to me.
