Almost none of us does not use one of the Google services and applications, whether the search engine, YouTube, mail, maps, and others. Google is known to track its users all the time even if you turn off location history, but the company's other services are still able to store your location data. Once you open the Google Maps app or use the search engine on your device, Google has your approximate location in a timeline. How do you protect privacy and prevent Google from knowing where you are?

Important clarification

Google uses all kinds of tracking, not only knowing your location, but it monitors the use of applications, what programs you have opened, visits to parking lots, and it makes something like your own file to allocate the advertising that targets you. So you may not need to do this step because I use the iPhone and he will not be able to follow me on the iPhone...Maybe this is true but do you only use the iPhone? Do not open any of the Google services on any other device? Doesn't even open Google apps on iPhone? In the end no one is unattended by Google.
