Google is making it easier to control your private data and search history
Google has been harshly scrutinized over the way that it handles user data for years. Not only does Google collect an unfathomable amount of data from us day in and day out, but we have no idea how much of the data is being used or where it's going. To that end, Google on Wednesday announced via a blog post that it is finally giving users greater control over the endless amount of data that it stores, starting with Google Search.
First and foremost, you can now delete your search history without ever leaving Google Search. Scroll to the bottom of the Your Search activity section on the new Your data in Search page, and you will see options to either delete the last hour of your search activity or all search activity you've ever conducted.
