Google records everything you have ever said to it.
The search engine’s voice activated request tool Ok Google keeps an audio log of every query.
This means every drunken request, whimsical query or embarrassing ask is stored forever on the internet giant’s servers.
But there is a way to turn it off.
Google keeps track of your questions to improve its voice recognition software , and to sell you adverts.
By visiting the company’s voice and audio activity page , you can see an audio record of every vocal request you have ever made to the search engine.
It could be a bit of a shock to realise all the silly things you’ve said to your phone, tablet or computer have been stored for posterity.
But under the ‘activity controls’ section, a toggle button gives you the option to pause ‘your voice searches and commands ‘.
Unfortunately this doesn’t stop Google keeping your recordings, it just means the files become anonymised.
If you want Google to stop recording your voice altogether, stop talking to it.
