Google issues on phone

Recommended Posts

I just recently got a new phone; alcatel onetouch Evolve 2. It's OS is android 4.4 kit Kat.

The last new smartphone I got was over 7 years ago so I'm completely lost with the advancements made.

Yesterday I was looking up pics for ending stigma about mental health on Google. This morning when I looked at my phone there was a pop up on the lock screen from Google (not sure which app) of a local mental health facility including transportation time to the facility with current traffic. WTF?

I'm guessing it's something to do with Google "watching" my activity within it's products but I don't feel comfortable with it doing something like this... 

What do I need to do so it's not watching my every move? I always prompt out of anything that wants to track anything I do or get my location unless I'm manually putting in a location (to get local weather or whatnot)
