Google announced a new privacy feature for its services. Users will now find an option to automatically delete Location History and Web & App Activity. Google auto delete controls will be rolling out in the coming weeks.
[Here’s How to Stop Google from Tracking Your Location]
You still have the option to manually delete your data, but now you can have the service automatically delete it after a set period of time. The options are:
- Keep until I delete manually
- Keep for 18 months
- Keep for 3 months
These new privacy controls will be rolling out in the coming weeks first to Location History and Web & App Activity. Because of the word “first” it implies the company might add this option to more services in the future.
