Google My Activity

30 June 2016

The recent announcement of a new service – Google My Activity – has enlightened many internet users about the information they leave behind as they bounce around the online world.

If you click through to https://myactivity.google.com/ Google will show you what it remembers about you. For most people, this information will continue for page after page after page.

  1. Sadly it won’t make most people more careful of what they ‘give’ the internet – and even with that silly ‘the right to be forgotten’ business, the internet never forgets …

  2. So it’s just a list of YouTube videos we’ve watched? I don’t remember seeing most of them. It’s nice of Google to remember for me.

  3. Mine is fairly sparse, because of my browsing methodology.

    I use firefox (with adblock and noscript) for all web browsing…

    …except, when using google apps (mail, etc) I use chrome. I don’t otherwise browse with chrome.

    I do not log into google-world with firefox. only with chrome.

    Mine also showed absolutely nothing except what I had viewed on Youtube. Not sure what’s going on here.

    I suppose it’s possible that the results are sorted by application or category, so that if I had been willing to continue scrolling through page after page of my previous Youtube viewings I might have come to something else. I stopped after I got back as far as last September.
