  • Google Search Data

Well, if this scenario is troubling you then Google has a very relaxing update, as they are now going to make the search history deletion process much simpler. However, nothing happens to the data which got stored on the servers of google. Fortunately, Google has recently revamped the procedure, and we've got details on the new method for deleting or otherwise clearing a user's search history.

Google has announced that, beginning today, Google Search users will be able view their search data and delete it. It's important to know what companies have information about you, who they can transfer the info to, how long that it's kept, and what control you have over their access. You can see that data in your Google account, but it's not very accessible.

Today, we're making it easier for you to make decisions about your data directly within the Google products you use every day, starting with Search.

Google also made it a little easier to find privacy controls related to Search, like ad personalization settings (see below).

Why is Google doing this now? People seem to prefer to leave most of their account settings the way they are before they all have to crawl them.

The new controls seem to be in response to a growing trend with tech companies being pulled up on issues of privacy. For search deletion, Google's announcement shows two options: "Delete last hour" and "Delete all search activity".

Before doing so, you can look over the search terms you've used (and the websites you've visited while searching).

Log into your Google account in Chrome browser app.

These changes are already available for the desktop and mobile web поискf.

Scroll down to "Delete your Search activity" on the page.

In the left sidebar, click "Delete activity by".

Tap "Your Data in Search".

The company is also planning to extend similar changes in services like Google Maps which saves a massive amount of location and search data.
