How to ask Google to auto-wipe your activity data on iOS

Google Auto-Delete Feature for Location History, Activity Data...

From now on, the users can choose to automatically delete their location history and web/app activity every 3 or 18 months. One of the more common concerns is with Google and its nigh monopoly on search and other online products, not to mention how much it knows about us.

Following several serious data breaches and controversies in the tech industry over the past couple years, one of the biggest data collection giants out there - Google - has been forced to walk on eggshells.

The features are now available, albeit on iOS and Android's Google apps. Google's default behaviour is still to collect all that data and it still will be up to users to stop or control what it does gather.

Steps To Enable WhatsApp Dark Mode on Android Devices: It is important to note that Android users need to update the device to the latest Android Q beta version.

Well, it's not the easiest task to spot the "location history" option in your Google account page. Regardless of the reason, Google may just not want the chance of being in hot water. You'll need to head into the settings menu to do it, but it is better than Google's previous all or nothing approach. Google aims to provide a middle ground by giving users some control of their data by launching a new feature that auto-deletes Location History information on iOS and Android devices. Google looked forward to working with the CCI "to demonstrate how Android has led to more competition and innovation, not less", the company said at the time.

Google has so far introduced the auto-delete functionality only for Location History and Web Activity data, though it will likely expand the feature to other types of data.
