How to Remember Where You've Been with Google Maps

If you are in a jurisdiction where COVID hasn't yet ravaged, such as Western Australia, you may be wondering whether there is a way that you can keep track of where you've been when exposure sites are listed. One way is to let technology do it for you. It is possible that Google Maps has already been doing it on your phone. Go to your Google Maps app on your phone and tap the top right corner then tap "Your Timeline". If you have location tracking enabled, you will see where you've been today and with one tap to the left arrow, where you were yesterday and at what time. 

If location tracking is not enabled, you should go to and sign in to Google if you haven't already. Then under Data and Privacy, tick the box next to Location History. Whether you have Google Maps open or not on your phone, your phone will now remember where you've been. Very helpful when you can't work out what you did last Tuesday when Omicron was walking the supermarket or pharmacy.
