Updated: May 3, 2019 10:12 am
If you have been manually wiping off traces of your whereabouts on the internet or in real life, Google is introducing a new tool to automate the process. Google announced its new auto-delete controls for location history and ‘Web & App’ activity to make data management easier. Simply choose a time limit for your activity data, from three months to 18 months, and any older than that will be automatically deleted on an ongoing basis. The feature will be rolled out to the masses in the coming weeks.
