Where is location history on Google?

Answered by Willie Powers

To find the “Location History” section in your Google Account, you can follow these steps:

1. Open a web browser and go to the Google Account page (https://myaccount.google.com/).
2. Sign in to your Google Account if you haven’t already.
3. Once you’re signed in, you’ll see various sections and settings related to your account. Look for the “Data & personalization” section and click on it.
4. In the “Data & personalization” section, you’ll find a list of options related to your data and privacy. Look for the “Activity controls” option and click on it.
5. Under the “Activity controls” section, you’ll see different types of activities that Google tracks, including “Location History.” Click on the “Location History” option.

Now, you can choose whether your account or your devices can report Location History to Google. Here’s how:

1. On the “Location History” page, you’ll see a toggle switch at the top that allows you to turn Location History on or off for your account and all devices associated with it.
2. If the toggle switch is enabled (blue), it means Location History is turned on. To turn it off, simply click on the switch to disable it. The switch will turn gray when it’s off.
3. If you want to turn Location History on, click on the switch to enable it. The switch will turn blue when it’s on.

By adjusting the toggle switch, you can control whether Google tracks and stores your location history. Keep in mind that disabling Location History may limit certain features and functionalities in Google services that rely on this data.

It’s worth noting that these instructions are accurate as of the time of writing, but Google’s interface and settings may change over time. If you encounter any difficulties or notice any discrepancies, it’s always a good idea to consult Google’s official documentation or support resources for the most up-to-date information.

I hope this helps you find the Location History section in your Google Account and adjust the settings according to your preferences.
