It is truly said that change is the only constant thing in this world. We can see many tech giants and other big names in the tech industry are bringing changes in their app or device to enhance customer experience.
Recently, it was reported that WhatsApp, Facebook, and many more are rolling out new features for their apps and devices. Similarly, the tech giant and search engine master, Google is launching its new privacy feature for search which enables you to delete your last 15 minutes’ search history from your mobile phones. The company announced the roll-out of this new privacy feature on Thursday. The new option was first revealed alongside several other search and Chrome improvements at I/O 2021 and is now rolling out to everyone.
The option to delete your last 15 minutes of search history is currently available for iOS users and it will be made available for Android users as well but later this year. On desktop, your options for deleting searches are limited to setting your history to auto-delete every three, 18, or 36 months, or deleting searches by hand.
Google says it only tracks your search history to “personalize” your experience when the “Web and App Activity” setting is enabled. Adding a way to instantly delete your history is great for your peace of mind, but it also means you can get some of the benefits the people who’ve taken the time to mess with their settings receive, without doing the extra work.
