Auto Delete

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.
