Google Maps is most popular mapping service in the world. Yeah, maybe to the level of YouTube and other services of the company cards so far away, but for many they are an integral part of life. And this applies not only to travel enthusiasts. Google maps is convenient, but this advantage may negate the fact that the company simply does not care about the privacy of user data.
Previously, Google has already caught on that it is secret from users collected geolocation data, and this applies not only Google Maps but also other services of the American giant. The company cannot take the place of Facebook which lately is often accused of spying on users, so in the new update of Google Maps has introduced interesting feature.
In the beta version of Google Maps 10.10 you can activate the automatic deletion of location data
In the new update you can now automatically delete the history of the user movement. This feature is already present in the cards, but it is manual — you cannot activate automatic deletion. It is unknown how often data will be deleted. Most likely, the app can arrange the session when the user closes the program, it automatically deletes the cache.
In the new beta also introduces Personal events, offering a variety of trips according to the Google calendar and bookings in Gmail.
It’s not enough
The scale of surveillance of the users of such a step is very small and clearly insufficient. The information available about you Google and Facebook are simply endless. And this despite the fact that even the universe has its limits. Jokes jokes, but in this respect Apple yet pleases more, cupertinos much better care about the privacy of its users.
