As a voice assistant, Google Assistant does wonders. And it also works as your personal assistant, offering you important information on a timely basis such as traffic details on your route, upcoming events, package tracking, and bills. In case you want to turn off the Google Assistant bill reminders, you are in the right place.

Google is trying to make our lives easier by showing us these things. However, some people do not like the reminders shown by Google. Primarily, because of privacy reasons and sometimes, the bill has already been paid, and yet Google sends a reminder.

So if you are also not liking the bill reminder feature for Google Assistant, we will tell you how to turn it off. But before that, let’s understand how Google knows about your bills and other information.

HOW DOES GOOGLE ASSISTANT KNOW WHEN YOUR BILLS ARE DUE

You must be wondering how did Google get all that information regarding your flights, packages, and bills. Don’t worry. Your details aren’t compromised.

Google scans your emails. Only emails in your Gmail account and not other email accounts. So if the Google account that is signed in your phone has emails from your credit card companies, travels agents, and more, Google will extract the relevant information from them and show it to you. That’s how Google gets information about your upcoming bills.

Doing above will stop Google from reminding you about upcoming bills. However, it won’t stop Google from scanning your bills. You might still see your bills in the update section of the Google app and Assistant, as shown below.

In case you want to stop Google from tracking your data completely, you will have to disable web and app activity. For that, follow these steps:

Step 1: Open the Google app and tap on More at the bottom.

WHERE ELSE CAN YOU SEE YOUR BILLS

Besides reminding you about the due date of your bills, you can check your daily personalized updates from Google in two places — Assistant and Google app.

Check Bills via Google Assistant

Launch Google Assistant on your phone. Then tap on the icon that resembles flashlight. Currently, it is present at the bottom-left corner, but Google keeps changing its position.

CAN YOU PAY VIA GOOGLE APP

Yes and no. Even though you get the Pay option under the bill, you will be taken to the service provider’s site. You cannot directly pay on the Google app.

WHO CAN SEE THE BILLS

You will see the bill reminders on the phones that are connected to your Google account. No other phone or account can have access to your bills.

BONUS TIP 1: VIEW UPCOMING BILLS ON DESKTOP

Similar to mobile phones, you can view your upcoming bills on the web too. For that, type the query ‘Show my bills’ in Google search. You need to be signed in to your Google account to make it work. The working is the same here as well. Google scans the emails in your connected Google account to show the due bills.

BONUS TIP 2: ASK ASSISTANT TO REMIND YOU ABOUT BILLS

Even though Google Assistant will automatically remind you when the due date is coming near for your bill, you can create manual reminders for the bill. For instance, if you want to be reminded on a particular date or at a particular location, such as when you are near the bill payment outlet for the service providers.

For that, launch Google Assistant and create a reminder using the command ‘Remind me’. Then say the time or location of the place along with the reminder name. For instance, remind me to pay the electricity bill at South Extension.

GAIN CONTROL

I like the bill reminders shown by Google Assistant. It has proved beneficial many times in helping me pay my bills before the due date. But, of course, everyone is different. Google should provide dedicated buttons to disable the information that you don’t want it to track. Hopefully, we might see such a button in the Google app someday.
