Google Brings Privacy Controls a Little Closer to Search

Google director of product management in the Privacy and Data Protection Office Eric Miraglia told Wired said the idea is to start with Google Search and go from there.

Google says that it has now introduced controls for managing search data from Search itself. This new change allows you quick access to the privacy controls in your Google Account that are most relevant as you use Search.

These methods will clear users' previous search queries, but they won't necessarily clear all of Google's stored data. The case against Google isn't about being "secretive" in their data-collection practice, but criticizes the company for being deceptive with their privacy toggles and switches.

Apparently, Google made the process of deleting your search history easier for you. Now, the procedure has become easy and convenient.

World's oldest intact shipwreck found in Black Sea
The University of Southampton says this confirms the vessel as the oldest known intact shipwreck in the world. The vase depicts Homer's epic hero Odysseus, tied to the ship's mast in order to resist the sirens' songs.

Users also can access their Activity Controls to decide what information Google saves to their account to make Search and other Google services faster and smarter.

Visit the Google homepage on your desktop or mobile device where you're logged in, and then click on Settings Your data in Search.

With a company as far-reaching as Google, concerns about user data are naturally always at the forefront (or at least they should be). And more importantly, you will be able to delete your search activity on Google. To use the new feature from your smartphone, navigate to Google Search, select the three-line button on the top-left of the screen, and then select the new "Your Data in Search" option. User data is of paramount importance to different parties these days, and hence, it becomes important for the tech giants to protect the data of their users, lest they want to become the next Facebook.

Google, one of the biggest stashers of our personal data, just updated Google Search - AKA Google.com - to make it easier for you to review and edit what search data the company stores.
