Does VirtualShield protect me from Google?

When you perform a search on Google, that data gets collected and used again the next time you search for something.

How do I prevent this?

To stop Google from tracking, you can go to myactivity.google.com under your Google account.

1
On the left-hand menu, click Activity Controls:
Tip: You can also access your Activity Controls by visiting this link.
2
Toggle off Web & App Activity and Location History to stop Google from storing your precise locations on your account:

Once you've disabled your Location History, you can safely browse on Google while you're connected to the VPN.

Google will only be able to see the IP address/location of the server you're connected to. They will not be able to recognize your actual location.

Note: We also recommend deleting your previous Location History in order to be fully protected.
See this Google support article for more information.
