Google also updated its Privacy Policy with videos and clearer language to better describe the information collected on users, why it is collected and how they can control it. And more importantly, you will be able to delete your search activity on Google.

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. On the mobile web experience, "Your data in Search" will be a persistent menu item on the home page as well as on results pages.

Users' Google Search data can now be managed directly from the search engine in a bid to make it easier for them to access their activity. Underneath, there's a link to go visit more activity controls. First, it's now easier for users to delete and control their search data, making it more hard to target ads to them.

The 54-year-old Austin finished with an 11-under total for three rounds at The Country Club of Virginia's James River Course. The last time that happened was in 1997, when Ernie Els , Tom Lehman and Tiger Woods each rose to the top position.


As stated above, this is one part of a larger initiative to make your data and privacy controls easily accessible within Google's products.

The new page also provides easy access to privacy controls in your Google Account relevant to Search, such as the ability to decide whether or not ads should be personalized based on the data the company has gathered, and activity controls, like voice recordings and location information while you browse Google sites.

This new control is available on mobile and desktop today, but won't hit the Google App on Android or iOS for a couple of weeks. In 2019, Google will expand these features to Maps, with many more Google services set to receive additional privacy features in the years to come. For example, to control the ads you see when you search, we give you access to your Ad Settings.
