There’s an incredibly detailed Google map of everywhere you’ve been – Business Insider

Need the perfect alibi? Forgot the name of that restaurant you had dinner at last week? Google Maps and its new “Your Timeline” feature will remember everywhere you have been — if you let it. The feature lets users “visualize your real-world routines, easily see the trips you’ve taken and get a glimpse of the places where you spend your time,” the search giant said in a blog post. Google Photos users will also get the bonus of seeing the pictures they took when resurfacing a certain day on their timeline.

Key Takeaways:

  • There’s a setting in your Google account, which — when turned on — creates a record of everywhere you go and when you went there.
  • In 2015, the company also started rolling out another feature called “Timeline,” which lets you easily view this information on a private, customizable map of your every move.
  • It’s intended to make your Google Maps experience more useful, like providing a faster commute to work or home.
