Google tracks your purchases


Last month, I posted about how to limit the personal information that Google tracks about you.

This month, I wanted to point out that Google is tracking the purchases of anyone using Gmail. It appears that Google automatically creates a list of all of your purchases based on email receipts. To see your purchases, enter the following URL: https://myaccount.google.com/purchases.

Google allows you to delete your individual purchases from its list. However, to do so, you have to delete the underlying email, which means that you cannot use your email as an archive.

The real question is why is Google tracking your purchases.
