10 Important Google Links to Know
10 Important Google Links to Know
Google stores everything in private and here are 10 important links (URL) that will unlock everything Google knows about you. They are hidden somewhere inside the panel of your Google account and can reveal interesting details about you that, otherwise, are only known by Google. Let’s dive.
1. Google stores a list of usernames and passwords you have entered in Google Chrome or Android to log in to multiple websites. They even have a website where you can see all these passwords in plain text.
2. Google creates a profile of yourself based on the sites you visit, guessing your age, gender and interests and then use this data to publish more relevant ads. Use this URL to see how Google sees it on the web.
3. It can easily export all your data from the Google ecosystem. You can download your photos from Google Photos, contacts, Gmail messages and even your YouTube videos. Go to the Takeout page to get the download links.
4. If you ever find your content on another website, you can file a DMCA complaint with Google against that site to remove the content. Google has a simple wizard to help you claim content and the tool can also be used to remove websites from Google’s search results that are scraping your content.
5. Your Android phone or Google Maps app on your iPhone is silently informing you of your location and speed (it moves and, if so, how fast it moves) to Google’s servers. You can find all of the location history on the Google Maps website and also have the option to export this data as KML files that can be viewed in Google Earth or even Google Drive.
6. Create a new Google account using your existing email address. The usual registration process uses your @ gmail.com address as the username for your Google account, but with this special URL, you can use any other email address as your username.
7. Google and YouTube record each search term that you have always typed or spoken in your search pictures. They keep track of every Google ad you’ve clicked on multiple websites, every YouTube video you’ve seen, and if you’re a Google Now user, you can also see a record of all your audio search queries. Google is fine.
8. You must log in to your Gmail account at least once every nine months, otherwise Google may cancel your account in accordance with your program policies. This can be a problem if you have multiple Gmail accounts as a solution, you can set your primary Gmail account as the trusted contact for your secondary accounts. So, Google will continue to send you reminders every few months to log in to your other accounts.
9. Worried about the fact that someone else is using your Google account or could be hacked? Open the activity report to see a record of all the devices that recently connected to your Google account. You will also know the I.P. Addresses and approximate geographical location. Unfortunately, you can not remotely disconnect from a Google session.
10. Can not locate your mobile phone? You can use Google Device Manager to search for your phone, as long as it is turned on and connected to the Internet. You can call the device, view the location or even delete the contents of the phone remotely. You can even find the IMEI number of the lost phone in your Google account.
