Should millions of you quit Google Maps after shocking new data harvesting exposure?

There’s a battle taking place right now—as big tech fights for its right to monetize you and your data, with just enough obfuscation to stop you short of reaching for the off switch. Apple is about to push the whole mobile marketing industry into a spin,

forcing app developers to ask for your permission to be tracked. The industry rightly fears that most of us will say no—and they’re right to be worried.On the surface, the privacy label for Google Maps is another horror show, especially when compared to Apple’s stock alternative—as you can see in the chart below. “App Privacy labels show all possible data that could be collected,” Google told me, pointing out that Apple collects data through its OS as well, per its p

rivacy policy. As for Maps, Google says, the actual data “depends on the specific features a person decides to use.”But, as we saw with Gmail and Chrome, the privacy labels speak for themselves. Too much data in too many categories, everything linked to user identities; if there’s a balance to be struck, then Google Maps appears to have missed the mark. headtopics.com

Privacy Label - Google Maps Vs Apple MapsApple / @UKZakAnd while Google says, as an example of users having some data control, that “in Google Maps, you could share audio access if you choose to use Assistant Driving Mode or voice commands, but this data wouldn’t be collected if you choose not to use those features,” the linkage between features and data collection is hard for users to navigate.

Google and Facebook have an issue. Apple has turned user privacy into a USP, and the two rivals are playing into its hands. I don’t expect Apple considered these comparisons as an immediate outcome from its privacy labels, but it will have gone down well. ESET’s Jake Moore talks of Apple “ramping up its privacy claim, firing on all cylinders to keep its users’ data protected.” He calls data “the currency of the 21st century,” and the staggering profits generated by Google and Facebook certainly back this up.

“Apple,” Moore says, “is thinking outside the box with how it operates.” Its critics argue that it can afford to do so as it’s not dependent on data to make its living—it’s selling tech and a related ecosystem. But, for users, that’s hardly the point.

Just as with Chrome, Google Maps does not collect data that isn’t linked to user identities. Perhaps the company should rethink this as a strategy? It’s fairly blatant. And while there are “incognito” settings that can alter this—those require users to manually override a default setting, which is not ideal. More on this below. headtopics.com

Apple Safari Vs Google ChromeApple / @UKZakFor many users, the delineation between linked and non-linked data might seem overly technical, but it’s absolutely critical. One of the most serious questions to come from Apple’s new privacy labels has been the linkage of data to personal identities. Just as one of the key criticisms of Google’s cookie replacement in Chrome has been the risk that clever marketeers find ways to

identify specific users via their browsers.Google’s argument appears to be that Apple collects its data in other ways, as set out in its broader OS privacy policy, flattering its app-specific labels. There’s doubtless an element of this, but if you take a look at Chrome’s privacy label compared to its rivals, not just Apple, then you’ll easily see the contrast in data harvesting approaches.

Chrome collects more data than Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox, and critically, it links all its data fields to user identities, which is unique among all leading browsers. This is a good illustration of the issue, and you can assume this is a broad-brush approach across Google’s other flagship apps, including Maps.

Chrome Vs RivalsApple / @UKZak“Privacy is core to everything we do,” Google told me again, when I asked about Maps. The company’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, has previously said that it avoids monetizing data in apps “where you primarily store personal content,” meaning the likes of Gmail, Drive, Calendar and Photos. But not Chrome. And not Maps. headtopics.com

I don’t see a problem of collecting data. All world is based on statistical information. Everything has been noticing and analyzing from beginning of the time, that’s how theory, technology, invention are arising from. However it would be fair to know how they are using it now. car thieves are using google maps to see what cars are good for GTAs and cat converter theft and where they live/work.

Seriously inaccurate. If you are travelling in outback Australia and relying on Google maps for estimations of fuel requirements and distances between towns you are putting yourself in danger. Recommended routes are bush tracks rarely used and in a remote environment. Don't use They're already facing antitrust litigation in the US and have been fined by the EU. Not sure why they're still operating.

Not really shocking and not really new. In the future,data is everything. The fact that Google maps is such a great service, yet is free* is incredible. Of course you're paying with your data, it's hardly a secret when they send you notifications asking about the place you just visited. IMHO Google maps should be suspended given the serious implications to national security. Google JoshFrydenberg PeterDutton_MP DominicRaab EU_Commission JoeBiden
