Report: Google Still Tracks You Even with Location History Off

申报:关掉落定位办事,谷歌依然会追踪用户定位记录

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(设备)和苹果手机用户在其移动设备上应用谷歌办事。个中某些谷歌办事应用GPS技巧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.

个中一项最广泛应用定位办事的(法式榜样)是谷歌地图。当有人应用谷歌地图时,时间和地位有关的信息都将被记录和贮存。

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.

谷歌还在其它办事上应用追踪对象。比如气象应用法式榜样,目标在于分辨出用户地点的地位并供给本地的气象信息。乃至一些谷歌搜集搜刮,也会导致或人在甚么时候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良其用户的本地化体验。但这类做法也激起隐私权保护方面的成绩。隐私维权人士呼吁谷歌和其它大年夜型科技公司,让用户在不想被追踪的情况下,可以更便利地封闭地位办事。

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.

美联社查询拜访注解,(封闭定位的)过程其实不如看起来那么轻易。查询拜访发明,即使在用户曾经更改隐私设置的情况下,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.

美联社表示,其查询拜访成果取得了位于新泽西州的普林斯顿大年夜学计算机研究人员的证明。

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.

谷歌在移动设备行业影响深远。全球约有20亿人应用谷歌开辟的安卓设备。另外还有不计其数的iPhone用户应用谷歌地图或应用谷歌停止搜刮。

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,谷歌明白请求许可应用地位信息。比如,谷歌地图将寻求用户许可应用法式榜样拜访地点地位,以便谷歌可以供给线路。假设用户许可谷歌搜集地位信息一段时间,谷歌地图将在其“时间轴”中显示该用户平常活动的汗青记录。

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.

谷歌还有一个“地位汗青”设置,该设置在用户赞助页面上有所解释。该公司表示,任何用户都可以随时封闭地位汗青记录。谷歌申明:“一旦封闭地位汗青,你的意向将不再被贮存。”该公司表示,当谷歌用户账号的地位汗青记录封闭时,该账号链接(用该账号登录)的一切设备的地位信息记录都被封闭了。

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.

但是美联社查询拜访发明仿佛本相并不是如此。美联社发明,即应用户封闭了地位汗青记录,谷歌仍在持续保存地位汗青记录。封闭地位汗青记录,只会阻拦谷歌创建关于用户所拜访地位信息的时间轴罢了。

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.

普林斯顿隐私研究员居内什·阿卡尔参与了美联社停止的个中一项测试。这家消息机构可以追踪他的意向,并辨认他几天内涵纽约郊区的拜访地位,包含家。

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.

其他普林斯顿研究人员在其它多台移动设备上证明美联社的测试成果

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·梅尔是普林斯顿大年夜学的一名计算机迷信家及前联邦通信委员会技巧专家。他不合意谷歌存储地位数据的办法,他表示,用户对此能够其实不清楚。

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“假设要许可用户封闭所谓的“地位汗青”,那么一切存储地位汗青的处所都该被封闭掉落。仿佛该有如许一个直接了当的立场才对。”

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请求时,谷歌表示它应用了多个追踪对象。

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.

公司在一项申明中表示:“谷歌能够会采取多种不合的方法来应用地位信息以改夫君们的体验,方法包含:地位汗青信息、搜集和应用法式榜样活动状况和设备级定位办事。”

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.

谷歌表示,用户可以经过过程封闭另外一个设置以停止保存一切地位标记。不过,该设置并没有明白注明与地位追踪有关。该设置被称为“搜集和应用法式榜样活动状况”。该对象在新设备上被激活(后),将搜集于谷歌应用和网站的不合种类的信息存储到用户的谷歌账户中。

How to prevent further tracking

若何防止进一步追踪

The easiest way to block further location tracking on any device is to go to the website myactivity.谷歌.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.

阻拦在任何设备上地位被进一步追踪的最简单办法是,登录myactivity.谷歌.com,该网页许可用户更改谷歌账户设置。在页面左上角的下拉菜单中,找到“活动控件”项,同时封闭“搜集和应用法式榜样活动状况”及“地位汗青记录”两项。这将阻拦你精确的地位标记被存储到你的谷歌账户中。
