Do you know Google always listen to your conversation: How to stop Google from Listening

The current 21st-century human is always or most of the times attached to one technological item or the other. Being it laptops, iPads, tablets and the most commonly seen, phones.

Most of these devices need Google to fully function to suit our diverse personal needs. Take for instance our mobile phones, we take them everywhere, to meetings, family gatherings, the school, to the dentist, everywhere. We also use them unabated, we treat our devices, like our confidantes, living our life’s, having conversations on and around it, unworried of a prying eye or ear, of someone ever getting ahold of any private conversation. We treat our devices like a safe deposit box!

Well, they may not be safe anymore. It has been found that Google can record, and actually records the conversations its users have around its devices, without their consent. Yes! And u can’t possibly begin to imagine the kind of things you’ve said that is being kept in a Google database somewhere. Google does this through google virtual assistant and google voice search. And most of us have directly or indirectly accessed google voice at a point. Yes, this gives Google permission to record any monologue, dialogue conference calls, etc, that u may have, not only on your device but any closest one as well. Not just recording but they can actually listen in on your conversations.


And this could possibly have future implications on the user as this recorded information can fall into the hands of a third party. The government and security agencies can use this information to get access to a very private aspect of your life, and this could be embarrassing, incriminating or outrightly disastrous. Granting access to unknown applications on your devices could also not be safe.
Do remember, Google is always listening.
