Google now lets you easily delete your search history

Google Brings Privacy Controls a Little Closer to Search

Google says it is also making it easier to access privacy controls so users can disable ad personalisation, and easily control which Google applications can save their activity. Having access to relevant and actionable privacy controls directly from the Google products you use every day is just one way that we are continuously working to build privacy that works for everyone.

France and Spain have previously fined Google as a result of privacy practices, but the firm avoided a penalty from the UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) in 2015 over the clarity of its privacy policies.

The updates are rolling out on desktop, mobile web and the Google Search app for iOS on Wednesday, but won't be available on the Android app until the coming weeks. Your search history is basically all the queries you've entered into Google search or into Chrome's omnibox when you're signed into either of them with your account. From there you can change your Activity Controls and select which pieces of information Google saves to your account.

Saudi Arabia Sends $3 Billion to Pakistan to Deal with Financial Crisis
Answering a question regarding Yemen , he said the government stance would remain the same and no soldiers would be sent there. Separately from the Saudi influx, Pakistan is also seeking an International Monetary Fund loan.

As we know, Google keeps a log of everything you search for on its search. Even if you clear your browsing history, your search queries still remain intact on Google servers.

This isn't a massive change in the grand scheme of things, but it is the start of a new initiative that will make it easier to control your data directly within Google's products.

There is ever-increasing concern about the volume of data that internet companies have about users, and Google is right at the top of that list.

Kelly was arrested after police responded to a call about a man who'd stumbled onto their property dressed in a cowboy costume. Kelly appeared in court on Tuesday morning, and his case is scheduled to be heard on November 8.

Google added a link to the data management options on its main Google Search page but Google customers may open the link directly as well if they prefer to go there directly.

Google says it plans to expand these privacy control efforts to Google Maps in 2019, followed by releases in "many" other Google products.
