How to quickly delete your Google search data

Google Search Data Google Brings Privacy Controls a Little Closer to Search
Troy Mann | 25 October, 2018, 16:13

The company launched a page at myactivity.google.com/privacyadvisor/search which will let you review your data and easily delete everything or everything for the last hour. The only problem was that these settings were essentially hidden deep inside the Google Account dashboard, and they are now much easier to access than ever before thanks to the direct link from Google Search.

Google has just announced a new option that enables you to view and delete your Google search history, making it possible to take control of some of the data stored on the company's servers. 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. Every time you make a search query on Google, and you happen to be logged into your account simultaneously, Google maintains a record.

This is why the privacy controls won't be hidden away in the settings anymore.

Without leaving Google Search, users can now review and delete their recent search activity.

To be clear, these are all controls that we could already access through Google's account settings menu.

Google plans to provide users greater transparency about how its products and services collect and share personal data, a move that comes as the tech giant finds itself the latest target of USA regulators and critics over data-privacy issues.

Before doing so, you can look over the search terms you've used (and the websites you've visited while searching).

On a smartphone, tap the menu button at the top-left corner of the Google search results page. Google plans to eventually expand the privacy features to other products, such as its mapping applications.

This new control is available on mobile and desktop today, but won't hit the Google App on Android or iOS for a couple of weeks.
