San Francisco: In yet another bid to address privacy concerns, Google is rolling out a key feature that will allow people to automatically delete their Location History, Web and App Activity data. Google last year courted controversy when an Associated Press investigation found that many Google services on Android devices and iPhones store users' location data even if the users explicitly used privacy settings to turn it off.
In a blog post late Thursday, Google said it is introducing auto-delete controls for users’ Locations History and Web and App Activity data. “You should always be able to manage your data in a way that works best for you,” added Marlo McGriff, Product Manager, Google Maps. (IANS)
