Google Exec Finally Admits to Congress That They’re Tracking Us Even with ‘Location’ Turned Off

A Google executive admitted during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday that Google tracks users’ phones — even when their location history is turned off.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) questioned Google Senior Privacy Counsel Will DeVries about the company’s tracking policies during a hearing examining online consumer privacy. Some of DeVries’ answers will likely disturb consumers who thought there was a way to avoid being tracked by Google through their phones.
