View-Location-History-in-Google-Maps

Before you start viewing your location history map, answer me a quick question, where have you been last Saturday at 6:00 PM?, well, I know your answer is something like “I have been in ………hmmm……I don’t remember…”, well, our brains don’t keep all the location data in a database, but Google does. Yes, Google keeps on tracking and recording your moves, your location, your travel, distance covered, time of travel and other things in its database. And the awesome part is, you can simply view your location history and go back in time to see where you’ve been in the past.

Google gets this data from your Android device’s in-built GPS.
