Answer all the questions.
1. Read the following and answer the questions given below:
An Associated Press report exposed a sneaky Google practice where the search giant continues to collect a user's location data even if the user has turned off the "Location History" setting on their mobile device. The data privacy issue affects both iOS and Android platforms, the two biggest smart-phone operating systems in the world, with the latter having around two billion users.
The issue roots from Google's "Location History" setting, which can be turned on and off depending on the user's preference. Now, even with the setting turned off, Google is able to collect location data via other Google apps & services such as Google Maps, Search & weather updates. Open Google Maps or perform a search & Google takes a snapshot of your location including the time. Google still tracks the user who at this point, believes they have already turned off location tracking.
There is, however, a way to turn off the location snapshots taken by the other Google apps. It's done through the "Web and App Activity" setting, which is enabled by default, & allows or disallows Google apps and websites from collecting & storing certain user information including location. Information generated by your activity can be accessed at myactivity.google.com. Google like Facebook does profit from personal data. Their business is advertising-driven & the more data they can collect and offer to advertisers & the more specific their data is, the more money they potentially make. These practices are now facing stiff challenges after the Facebook debacle earlier in the year.
Just a few months after the Facebook scandal, the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect – landmark legislation that not only tightened companies' use, collection & commercial harnessing of personal data, but also boosted global awareness of data privacy matters. The issue concerning Google's location tracking settings is the latest in a continuing series of data privacy matters.
