When I do a Privacy Checkup from my Google Account page, and examine the first setting 1. Control what others see about you, I see that I have a number of "Followers".
I am wondering why this happens, even though I don't have a Google Plus profile – at least not an active profile that I know of. When I go to Google Plus, I am met by an "Account upgrade to Google Plus" screen.
- Why do I have these "followers"?
- How can I see who they are?
- Most importantly, how can I remove/block the followers, and hinder new followers?
