Facebook is potentially tracking you outside its own website using your own photos
Google is now taking your privacy more seriously than ever. Earlier this year, the technology giant introduced a way to access and delete some or all of the data collected on your location history, applications and web activities. The option is available, but not everyone knows how to access it. Fortunately, Google has recently implemented a new way of doing it, making it easier and faster for everyone to protect his personal data.
From your Google Account, the feature allows you to set an expiration date for your data. The options proposed are not as good as we would like, but they still allow to set an expiry date of 3 or 18 months. This means that even if you forget to delete your data manually, your web activity history and location data will remain anonymous. The feature is currently spreading to mobile devices, so it may not yet be on your phone, but it will eventually. In the meantime, you can access it via the Web. Here's how to do it:
First, make sure you are logged in with your Google Account. Once done, click on this link to access your activity history: https://myactivity.google.com/item?restrict=waa&utm_source=retention-promo=waa&utm_source=retention-promo
