Know! what Google Knows About You

Want to find out all the things Google knows about you? Here are some useful links to the data Google has about you.

1. Find out what Google thinks about you

In order to serve relevant ads, Google collects data about you and creates a profile. You can control and review the information Google has on you here:

Google also has a tool called Google Analytics, that helps publishers see what pages you have viewed on their website, how many times you have visited it, how long did you stay etc. You can opt-out if you don’t want this type of data to be collected:
