We already know that Google collects tons of data about us, and many of them come from the search. Google has many ways to limit the amount of data you have lying around, but they are not that easy to find. As of today, Google makes it easier to view and delete your search activity.
Previously, you could visit your Google Account in Settings on Android phones or on the Internet on iOS. Touch . Manage your data and your personalization. and then My Activity to see your search results. Then you need to tap the three-dot menu and select Delete to remove something. Finding your search history on desktops was just as cumbersome.
Google greatly simplifies this process. Instead of opening your account, you can see your history each time you search for something. When you search for a term in Chrome, you can manage your entire search history without leaving the browser or interrupting your activity. How It Works with Mobile Phones:
- Sign in to Chrome with your Google Account.
- After starting a search, tap the Hamburger menu to the left of the Google logo
- . Select Your data in the search
- Scroll down to your most recent activity
- Tap All Search Activities
In the desktop version of Chrome, you only need to click the new link "Control Your Data in Google Search" below the icon Google Search and I Feel Happy on the Google homepage. Alternatively, you can click Settings and select your search data on a search results page.
If you follow these steps, you will be taken to your full search activity page for your account. If you can see all your recent activity, delete individual results or full days of history using the three-character menus next to each search term.
But you do not have to be so detailed anymore. On the first page, "Your data in the search," Google has added handy buttons that allow you to either clear your past-hour search activity or clear the entire search history if you just want to start over.
You'll also find it fast Switches between web and app activity and voice and audio activity, so you can quickly disable access and ad personalization settings. These settings are important if you want to restrict Google's non-search tracking for things like location access and assistant results.
Google introduces this change to Chrome and other desktop and mobile browsers today, pushing the change to the Google app for iOS and Android "in the moving weeks." In addition, Google promises to expand the feature to 2019 and on "many other Google products."
