friendly reminder that you can go to https://takeout.google.com and download a copy of all the data google has ever collected on you!
based on this report, google knows enough creepy shit about me that anyone that had a copy of this data could probably blackmail me into doing bad things to people i love.
stop using google products.
and this is just the data i didn't opt out of (can i even opt out of them scraping my emails for purchase info???) and that they were willing to give me, as someone that actively avoids Google products and shuts off any Google-related tracking on everything they own
other people have found entire private conversations, listings of their whereabouts down to what they were doing earlier that month (ICE eat your fucking heart out), deleted photos from their phone...
