Probably more than you think. Google knows a lot about you not just through its search products but also through apps, mail and other internet-related services.

The convenience of using Google’s many products comes at a price, and that price is your data. 

Thebestvpn's infographic outlines what Google knows about you, your friends, places you’ve been to, your likes and dislikes and your plans - as well as your online activity.

All this information makes your online activity smoother and more personalised; answers to your questions a click away, directions super easy with Google maps, and seamless working across platforms.

However, if you’re uneasy about the amount of information held on you, there are steps you can take to protect your privacy, such as using a vpn, private browsing, or just making sure your privacy settings are adjusted to what you’re happy with. Google itself lets you see what data is collected through their Privacy Site.
