  • Google Search Data

Google is trying to make privacy controls more obvious. There the user will see options to either delete the last hour of search activity or all search activity the person has ever conducted. For example, to control the ads you see when you search, Google will now give users the access to their Ad Settings. The case against Google isn't about being "secretive" in their data-collection practice, but criticizes the company for being deceptive with their privacy toggles and switches.

The new privacy options are available today on desktop and mobile web today, with an update for the Google app on iOS and Android to follow in the coming weeks. Now, the procedure has become easy and convenient.

As an example, Brookman says users must disable their Web & App Activity to keep Google from storing future search activity, but disabling it also turns off few useful functions in services such as Maps. 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.


You can, of course, erase search history on your individual browser and device, thereby protecting your searches from prying eyes that may have access to your device or may even be peeking over your shoulder. First, it's now easier for users to delete and control their search data, making it more hard to target ads to them. From the resulting dropdown, choose Your data in Search. Data privacy has been one of the hottest debates across major internet economies.

Ordinarily, these privacy tools were a couple layers beneath your Google Account hub, which itself isn't an especially well-known access point. You can visit your Google Account to do that, but now there's an easier way. Giant tech companies are taking measures to protect privacy by taking the issues such as earlier this year, Facebook has faced a major privacy scandal and its recent security breach.
