Report: Google Still Tracks You Even with Location History Off

陈诉:关失定位效劳,谷歌仍然会追踪用户定位记载

Many Android and iPhone owners use Google services on their mobile devices. Some of these services use GPS technology to collect information about the places people go.

很多安卓(设置装备摆设)和苹果手机用户在其挪动设置装备摆设上运用谷歌效劳。此中某些谷歌效劳运用GPS技能搜集关于人们的意向信息。

One of the most widely used location services is Google Maps. When someone uses Google Maps, information about times and locations are recorded and stored.

此中一项最普遍运用定位效劳的(顺序)是谷歌舆图。当有人运用谷歌舆图时,工夫和地位有关的信息都将被记载和贮存。

Google also uses tracking tools with other services. Weather apps, for example, are designed to identify a user's location to provide local weather information. Even some Google internet searches can result in the collection of information about exactly where a person was when the search was made.

谷歌还在别的效劳上运用追踪东西。比方气候使用顺序,目标在于辨别出用户地点的地位并提供外地的气候信息。乃至一些谷歌网络搜刮,也会致使或人在何时何地停止搜刮方面的信息被搜集。

Google says it collects the data to improve localized experiences for its users. But such practices have also raised privacy concerns. Privacy activists have called on Google and other major technology companies to make it easier for users to turn off location services if they do not want to be tracked.

谷歌称,它搜集数据是为了改进其用户的当地化体验。但这种做法也引发隐私权维护方面的题目。隐私维权人士号令谷歌和别的大型科技公司,让用户在不想被追踪的状况下,可以更方便地封闭地位效劳。

An investigation by the Associated Press, or AP, suggests this process is not as easy as it might seem. The investigation found that Google continues to collect location information even on users who have changed their privacy settings.

美联社观察标明,(封闭定位的)进程并不如看起来那么容易。观察发明,即便在用户曾经变动隐私设置的状况下,谷歌仍在持续搜集地位信息。

The AP says the results of its investigation were confirmed by computer science researchers at Princeton University in the American state of New Jersey.

美联社表现,其观察后果失掉了位于新泽西州的普林斯顿大学盘算机研讨职员的证明。

Google's influence in the mobile device industry is far-reaching. About two billion people worldwide use Google-developed Android devices. In addition, hundreds of millions of iPhone owners use Google for maps or for making searches.

谷歌在挪动设置装备摆设行业影响深远。环球约有20亿人运用谷歌开辟的安卓设置装备摆设。别的另有不计其数的iPhone用户运用谷歌舆图或运用谷歌停止搜刮。

In some ways, Google is clear about asking permission to use location information. For example, Google Maps will seek approval from a user to give the app access to locations so it can provide directions. If a user agrees to let Google collect location information over time, Google Maps will show this history in a "timeline" that shows the person's daily movements.

在某些方面,谷歌明白要求容许运用地位信息。比方,谷歌舆图将寻求用户容许使用顺序拜访地点地位,以便谷歌可以提供线路。假如用户容许谷歌搜集地位信息一段工夫,谷歌舆图将在其“工夫轴”中表现该用户一样平常运动的汗青记载。

Google also has a "Location History" setting, which it explains on its support page. The company says any user can turn off Location History at any time. "With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored," Google states. The company says when Location History is turned off for a user's account, it is turned off for all devices linked to that Google account.

谷歌另有一个“地位汗青”设置,该设置在用户协助页面上有所表明。该公司表现,任何用户都可以随时封闭地位汗青记载。谷歌声明:“一旦封闭地位汗青,你的意向将不再被贮存。”该公司表现,当谷歌用户账号的地位汗青记载封闭时,该账号链接(用该账号登录)的一切设置装备摆设的地位信息记载都被封闭了。

But the AP investigation found this does not appear to be true. It found that Google continued to save location history even if a user had turned off Location History. Turning off Location History only stopped Google from creating a timeline of locations the user had visited.

但是美联社观察发明好像原形并非云云。美联社发明,即便用户封闭了地位汗青记载,谷歌仍在持续保管地位汗青记载。封闭地位汗青记载,只会制止谷歌创立关于用户所拜访地位信息的工夫轴罢了。

One of the tests the AP carried out involved Princeton privacy researcher Gunes Acar. The news agency was able to track his movements and identify visited locations - including his home - over several days in the New York City area.

普林斯顿隐私研讨员居内什·阿卡尔到场了美联社停止的此中一项测试。这家旧事机构可以追踪他的意向,并识别他几天内涵纽约郊区的拜访地位,包罗家。

Acar was carrying an Android phone with Location History turned off.

阿卡尔随身携带一款地位汗青信息已封闭的安卓手机。

Other Princeton researchers confirmed the AP's test findings on multiple mobile devices.

其他普林斯顿研讨职员在别的多台挪动设置装备摆设上证明美联社的测试后果

Jonathan Mayer is a Princeton computer scientist and former technologist with the Federal Communications Commission. He disagrees with Google's methods for storing location data, which he says can be unclear for users.

乔纳森·梅尔是普林斯顿大学的一名盘算机迷信家及前联邦通讯委员会技能专家。他差别意谷歌存储地位数据的办法,他表现,用户对此能够并不清晰。

If you're going to allow users to turn off something called 'Location History,' then all the places where you maintain location history should be turned off, Mayer said. "That seems like a pretty straightforward position to have."

梅尔表“假如要容许用户封闭所谓的“地位汗青”,那么一切存储地位汗青的中央都该被封闭失。好像该有如许一个刀切斧砍的态度才对。”

In answer to a request for comment from the AP, Google said it uses several location tracking tools.

在答复美联社的置评恳求时,谷歌表现它运用了多个追踪东西。

There are a number of different ways that Google may use location to improve people's experience, including: Location History, Web and App Activity, and through device-level Location Services, the company said in a statement.

公司在一项声明中表现:“谷歌能够会接纳多种差别的方法来运用地位信息以改进人们的体验,方法包罗:地位汗青信息、网络和使用顺序运动形态以及设置装备摆设级定位效劳。”

Google says users can stop the saving of all location markers by turning off another setting. That setting, however, is not clearly identified as being connected to location tracking. The setting is called "Web and App Activity." It is activated on new devices. The tool stores different kinds of information from Google apps and websites to a user's Google account.

谷歌表现,用户可以经过封闭另一个设置以中止保管一切地位标志。不外,该设置并没有明白注明与地位追踪有关。该设置被称为“网络和使用顺序运动形态”。该东西在新设置装备摆设上被激活(后),将搜集于谷歌使用和网站的差别品种的信息存储到用户的谷歌账户中。

How to prevent further tracking

怎样避免进一步追踪

The easiest way to block further location tracking on any device is to go to the website myactivity.google.com, which permits users to change Google account settings. On the upper left drop-down list, go to "Activity Controls." Turn off both "Web & App Activity" and "Location History." This should prevent exact location markers from being stored to your Google account.

制止在任何设置装备摆设上地位被进一步追踪的最复杂办法是,登录myactivity.google.com,该网页容许用户变动谷歌账户设置。在页面左上角的下拉菜单中,找到“运动控件”项,同时封闭“网络和使用顺序运动形态”及“地位汗青记载”两项。这将制止你精确的地位标志被存储到你的谷歌账户中。
