Google Rolls Out Easier Access to Your Personal Data Controls

How to review and delete your Google search history Credit Google
Mandy Jefferson | 26 October, 2018, 06:28

To access the setting on mobile, open Google Search in a browser (while logged into a Google Account), touch the hamburger menu in the top left and then choose "Your data in Search".

Google is giving even more control to users when it comes to search, and in turn, keeping tabs on their privacy while browsing the internet.

France and Spain have previously fined Google as a result of privacy practices, but the firm avoided a penalty from the UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) in 2015 over the clarity of its privacy policies.

Users will also be guided toward privacy controls where they can prevent Google from collecting certain types of personal data through its search engine. "Now, we're bringing these controls to you - from directly within Search, you can review or delete your Search activity and quickly get back to finding what you were searching for", explained Miraglia. To delete all your Google search history, click the "Delete all Search activity" button.

Google launched an update today that make sit easier for Google users to delete the search history.

To delete the search information this company has stored about you, go to Google.com on your iPhone, iPad or another computer. Google plans to roll out updates for its Android and iOS applications to integrate the functionality as well. But following multiple events and growing threats to user privacy, whether it be courtesy Facebook or Google, there has been growing demand for increased transparency from tech companies in the way they tackle user data. Both claim that the companies engage in deceptive practices, letting users believe that they have disabled location tracking, yet the data is still being "secretly" collected.

"Next year, we'll expand this to Maps, followed by many other Google products", Miraglia said.

Other privacy controls such as disabling ad personalization will also now be easier to reach.
