If you use google services then you likely have a location history stored by Google – don’t worry though, only you can see it!
By accessing your history you can view all the places you’ve been (while location sharing was enabled on your device). You may also be able to view routes you’ve traveled and much more. If you use an Android device you may have automatically received messages from Google on a daily basis telling you about a commute time and delivered to you at a very timely moment (like before leaving for work in the morning). This is enabled by your location history and Google detecting daily patterns or your movements. Google does allow you to view your history, delete it, or turn it on or off. Note, if you don’t mind Google knowing more about you and you want even more useful data served to you about specific locations then use the Google G+ Checkin feature via mobile for your favorite places!
An added bonus and of particular interest in these days of the Coronavirus, you can use your Google location history to fill in the gaps in your contact tracing!
Access your location history by logging in and jumping to https://maps.google.com/locationhistory/
