Now it has been expanded to add the following, "This setting does not affect other location services on your device, like Google Location Services and Find My Device. Some location data may be saved as part of your activity on other services, like Search and Maps. When you turn off Location History for your Google Account, it's off for all devices associated with that Google Account."
The AP report said it had examined Google services on both Android devices and iPhones and found that turning off Location History had no impact at all.
The company's support page says: “You can turn off Location History at any time. With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored.”
But the AP found that this was a lie and even with Location History turned off, some Google apps store time-stamped location data.
Patacsil's suit says from 2016 onwards he owned an iPhone that had various Google apps on it and he attempted to limit tracking of his location by managing his Location History setting.
Prior to that, he says he owned an Android phone on which he had carried out similar actions to limit the tracking of his location.
He has sought a jury trial and the extension of the suit to a class action, with separate iPhone and Android branches.
