Last Updated on March 2, 2021 by Larious


As of now, there are more than a hundred Google Services and tools out there. Most of us aren’t aware of every service and tool that the search giant offers. Whenever we hear the word ‘Google Products,’ we usually start to think of Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps, Google Chrome, YouTube, Android, etc.

If you are a regular user of Google Search, Gmail, Maps, or any other Google service, you might know that Google collects and remembers information about your activity. It has access to your web searches, Youtube search, location history, and more. Google uses this data to personalize your experience and to improve its ecosystem.

Although there’s no risk involved in sharing data with Google, if you want to be on the safe side, you can enable the ‘Auto-Delete’ feature for the Web & App activity and the Location History. This is a feature that tells Google to auto-delete your activity after three months.
