What does Google know about the places you’ve recently visited? What are your areas of interest determined by Google? Where does Google store a list of all the words I type in the search box? Where can I get a list of Google ads that interest me?
Important Google URLs
The 10 Important Google Links
Google saves everything personally and here are 10 important links (URLs) that unblock everything Google knows about you. They are hidden somewhere on your Google account dashboard and can reveal interesting details about you that only Google knows about. Let’s dive in.
01. View all Google web activity
In My Activities, you can search and view searches, browsing history, and other activities stored in your Google Account. You can check what’s stored there and remove past activity from your account.
02. Recently used device
Protect your account by keeping your security settings up to date. From this URL, you can see the device used to log into your account and decide how to notify you when suspicious activity occurs in your account.
03. Sign up without Gmail
Create a new Google account using your existing email address. The normal sign-up process uses the @ gmail.com address as the username for your Google account, but this special URL allows you to use any other email address as the username.
04. Google translation
Google Translate instantly translates your language into English and over 100 other languages. You can also listen to the language translated from this website.
05. Data backup
You can easily export all your data from the Google ecosystem. You can download Google Photos, Contacts, Gmail Messages, Google Drive, Chrome History, and even YouTube Videos. Go to the takeaway page and get the download link.
06. Location history on the Google map
Did you know that Google monitors and tracks every place you visit using your Android device? It is a little scary to know, but it is a very little known fact. Whenever you use Google Maps or Google Now, these apps monitor and track your location and store it in Google’s location history.
Track all location history from this URL, like this image.
07. Google security
Protect your Google account and Google services from this link. Here you can set up a two-step verification process with your Google account and see all your Google security settings.
08. Inactive account manager
You must log into your Gmail account at least once every nine months. Otherwise, Google may close your account in accordance with our program policies. This can be a problem if you have multiple Gmail accounts. To get around this, you can set up your primary Gmail account as a trusted contact for your secondary account. As a result, Google will continue to send reminders every few months to log into other accounts.
09. Show all stored passwords
Google saves a list of usernames and passwords that you enter in Google Chrome or Android to log into various websites. They also have a website where you can see all those passwords in clear text.
10. Create Google alerts
Google Alert is another service that I believe few people know about. However, this Google URL turned out to be very useful for all Google users, so I have listed it here. Indeed, this service helps you to receive email alerts for any business, product, or whatever you want. Please visit the URL above and search for the one you want to receive alerts for.
11. Find your phone
Can’t find your cell phone? As long as you are connected to the internet, you can use Google Device Manager to find your phone. You can also call the device, view the location and remotely wipe the phone contents. You can also find the IMEI number of your lost phone in your Google account.
