Google Search makes it easier to access and control your data

Google Brings Privacy Controls a Little Closer to Search

To erase your Google search history on desktop, click Settings Your Data in Search at the top of the page, right below the right side of the search box. The page also includes details about how exactly the data collected when you search on Google is being used.

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. Google will be bringing the same tools to search on iOS and Android in the days to come.

Before Wednesday, you had to pop into your Google account to manage this data. Google reportedly declined to alert users about the flaw to avoid regulatory scrutiny, instead opting to quietly patch it in March. Additionally, ad settings are also made available in Google Search, and now the user won't have to go in their Google account to make all these changes.

Prince Harry lays wreath for veterans in Fiji
The duke spoke of his admiration for the Fijian service personnel at a black tie dinner hosted by the president on Tuesday night. The palace said in a statement, "The Duke and Duchess have chose to cut back The Duchess's schedule slightly".

Users can also turn off Google activity controls, voice recording, and ad personalization.

If you've ever gotten discouraged trying to find exactly where in Google's menus to view and edit your search history, Google hears you. All of this data is used by Google, and the company says that it isn't shared with any other third party. Clearly, deleting your Google search history just got a whole lot easier, and hopefully, it would help restore some faith among users who have been increasingly feeling wary of their privacy with regards to Google.

Having been on the receiving end of numerous fines from European regulators, Google appears to be covering itself from future litigation as much as it is giving end users more control over their personal data.

"Next year, we'll expand this to Maps, followed by many other Google products", Miraglia said.

The move to make privacy settings more prominent comes at a time when Google is under an intensifying spotlight over privacy issues.
