On Google Maps, See All The Places You Have Ever Visited As a Timeline

By | May 31, 2018

We visit different places every year, month, week, and day. Some of them are our favorite place, while others are a little unfavourite. Your timeline is private, so only you can see it. If you wish to see all the places that you have ever visited then “Timeline” in Google Maps will be the best option to try.

Google Maps Timeline is simple to use and very interactive. It is compulsory to log in to your google account to access your timeline because it is private. The timeline also helps to switch from one year to another, access a particular month and date so that you can see the places for the day you prefer.

The map is definitely not foolproof but you can correct or change if the mode of transport is showing wrong. If you want, you can even remove a day from the timeline, so you have the full control. You can see a graph that shows a list of all the places you have visited so far each day. Also, you can see which type of transport you have taken to travel from one place to another place.
