But as I looked into this topic a bit further I found out Google knows a lot more about me (and you) than you probably think it does.
Today’s infographic comes to us from TheBestVPN and it shows what Google knows about you, how the tech giant gathers that information, and a few solutions to stop Google from tracking you.

Google, like Facebook, uses this personal information to target customised advertisements for you, but my friend Chris (the conspiracy theorist) tells me there's a deeper darker agenda.
