Google has been tracking Smartphone users everywhere they go, indicating trips with a red dot on a map to mark and make their location much clearer for identification.


You can even track yourself to see whether what we are talking about is true or not. Just login with the same Google account you use on your Smartphone. You will be able to see records of everywhere you have been from day one of that month.

Whats more is that it’s able to attach photo’s you’ve taken during your travels, link it to that trip and display them on your Travel Timeline! You must be a Google Photos user for this to be shown.
