This might well be the creepiest page ever: All the purchases a user has ever done. If the user receives a confirmation email for a purchase they made, the user is not notified that Google collected and displays this piece of information in this page. There is no explanation why they are collecting all the purchases in one page, and apparently there is no way to opt out of this or even delete the purchases from the list.

CNBC wrote an article on the creepy Google “Purchases” page I talked about 4 months ago, pointing out that it’s impossible to do it if you want to keep the receipts in your inbox. I hope that if enough media outlets call them out and ask for explanations, Google would finally allow purchase data to be deleted.
