To review their history, a user just has to go to the menu in the top left corner of the Search page and click on "Your data in Search". "I'm glad they're making the settings a little easier to find, but the settings they present you with still don't give users the controls they deserve".

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.

In recent weeks, Google has announced a crackdown on the types of personal information that third-party developers can access from Gmail, Google's free web-based e-mail service, along with call and text data from Android, the company's mobile operating system.

As we know, Google keeps a log of everything you search for on its search.

Bottom line: Removing your search history from Google's servers has gotten easier, but the amount of data that Google collects is still not going to be reduced anytime in the foreseeable future. It'll then bring up a form where you can set a date range through which your activity will be deleted, as well as the Google products that this will apply to.

In Google's words: "When you use Google products, you generate data about your activity".

Currently, you can see your search activity by logging into your Google account control dashboard.

With a company as far-reaching as Google, concerns about user data are naturally always at the forefront (or at least they should be). While it is not a huge advance in terms of our level of control, making it easy and obvious that protecting your data can and should be a habit is a small step in the right direction.

A new feature has been introduced to Google Search that allows users to delete their search history from remote storage.

Google says it plans to expand these privacy control efforts to Google Maps in 2019, followed by releases in "many" other Google products.
