How To Find and Delete the Personal Data Google Has on You

Google’s motto is “do no evil”. That was probably written when Google was a pony little startup and all it wanted to do was index all the pages of the internet. Now it wants to map every corner of the world, make self-driving cars, and do lots of other crazy things. All this costs money and if you’re aware, Google doesn’t really ask for money from consumers.

Of course, there’s no such thing as a free lunch. So you pay with information. Your own, personal information is the cost of free service.

If you’re not willing to pay that price, Google does provide options to delete some of your data and in some places you can opt-out from the tracking altogether. As you’d expect, these options aren’t exactly advertised.
