Google: Going to Add New Privacy Controls to Delete Your Data

by Jack Tucker IT Support Engineer

Google stores a vast amount of information on your system when you search; use Google maps, and YouTube etc. To delete such information you need to dig a bit deep into your privacy settings. But luckily, now the search giant is making it much easier for you to remove your search history and also adding more privacy controls for its other services such as for Maps in the upcoming year.

Delete Your Search Data

The company is introducing new changes to the desktop. Remember, Android, and iOS updates will be following in the form of updates.

Now, you can review and delete recent history from your desktop browser.

Here, you will learn how to do it. The steps are very easy and simple only if you follow the steps in a given sequence. The levels are discussed below.

  1. Firstly, on the Google search page, click on the ‘Control your data’ in the Google Search link under the search box.
  2. Then, check for some short video that will explain to you how Google will be using your data with your search history.
  3. After that, delete your links as well as search activity to other privacy controls like App and Web Activity as well as Audio and Voice Activity.

The company is also thinking to take some significant steps like to expand privacy controls Map services as well as for other services soon. It will be not wrong if you are expecting a complete change in privacy settings shortly. It is also about to add prevention of Google sites from saving our previous work and to disable personalization.

These changes have been mentioned because the company has received a lot of criticism about the way it manages your data and controls it. With Chrome 69 there was a controversial auto-login feature that the company reversed course on. You have more control with Chrome 70 over the way the browser logs you in. According to Associated Press, the company was still tracking even if you turned location tracking off. Don’t panic if you have missed it because you can still read the article on how to completely stop Google from tracking your site.

However, Google tracks you in lot many ways that it’s tough to keep up with it all. For instance, if you have a Google Home speaker, it will record everything you say to it. To listen to your recorded voice commands and delete them you need to visit the settings in actual.
