Google has launched its new privacy feature that allows users to quickly delete their last 15 minutes of saved search history. The feature is available in the Google app for iOS and will come on Android devices later this year. The feature was first announced at Google I / O in May and is now making its way to iOS devices. This is useful in case you share your device with other people and you don’t want to enter settings to manually delete the story. The Google app can also cancel search activity every 3.18, or 36 months, if the option is enabled.
In a recent one blog post, Google shared has launched a new privacy option for the Google app in iOS. This brings up an “Delete last 15 minutes” option in the app that allows you to quickly delete your Web activity history and app for the last 15 minutes in case you need to share your device with someone else. The option can be found in the Google app on iOS when you tap on your profile. Google also offers an unknown search mode and an automatic deletion feature, but this new option makes things a little easier.
Currently, this feature is only available on iOS and Android users will get it later this year. We were able to see the shortcut on version 167.0.382489606 of the Google app.
For those who don’t know, Google allows you to enable or disable the saving of Web activity and apps on Google sites and apps on iOS and Android. If you have this feature enabled, there is an auto-cancel feature that gives you three options – 3 months, 18 months and 36 months. This means that the search history will be deleted every 3, 18 or 36 months. By default, it’s set to 18 months, but you can change it by going to the Google app, tapping on your profile icon and then the search history. Here you should see the Autopressure function where you can select the duration. Regardless of the automatic deletion feature, you can manually delete your Web and app activities at any time.
