Use This Trick To See A Map Of Everywhere Google Knows You've Been
........
If you have a Gmail account or use any of Google’s apps, there’s a good chance Google has some of your location data stored in its systems.

Luckily, there’s an easy way to see exactly what Google knows about where you’ve been, and you can even see a map of past locations you’ve visited.

This all depends on whether you’ve enabled two settings tied to your Google account: location reporting and location history. Of course Google lets you turn these settings off at any time, and even offers step-by-step instructions.

But you’re interested in seeing what’s already been recorded.

First, sign in to whichever Gmail or Google account you use the most.

Head on over to this little-known Google Maps website

You could see some data points pop up immediately or you might see nothing; it all depends on if and when your phone recorded your location for apps such as Google Maps.

The easiest way to thoroughly search your location history is to change the “Show” ticker from 1 Day to 30 Days, which will let you see all of your location data by the month. You can then work backward by the month until you start to see the red data points and lines pop up.

Google apps etc share this information with other apps.
