All you need is a pc, so you can take a look at the location history of your account. If you’re not sure exactly how to navigate there then don’t panic, here’s a link to take your straight there.
Spend a bit of time excitedly looking at all of the places you’ve been, and then notice two options near the bottom left hand side of the screen. With these you can delete either the history from that specific day, or remove all of it, every single piece of your data and be deleted with the click of a button. Be warned, there is no backup of this information so if you do delete it all, it’ll forever live on in the virtual graveyard.
Of course you might just want to export all of your precious data to an alternate mapping tool, Google kindly provide a tool for this, allowing your data to be in a KML format.
Manage your location history on your Android
There aren’t a great deal of options you can do from your device, but if you want to save your battery power, and stop your device tracking you, head into your device settings, find Location, and turn off the service easily from there.
At the bottom of that same location page, there is a ‘Location History’ link which will gives you the choice to delete all of the data there, as well as turn the tracking off for all of your other connected Android devices!
You’ll have to weigh up all of the pros and cons for yourself and decide whether you think its worth keeping location services on. A part of you might think you don’t want Google to know exactly where you are at any given moment, but you won’t become invisible in this digital age even if you do turn them off.
