Google tracks your every move, but a new tool is rolling out that lets you force it to delete where you’ve been

The first tool, which let you set up a way to automatically delete your web and app activity history, rolled out on May 8. Google said Wednesday it is activating a feature that will automatically delete your location history after a specific amount of time, either every three months or every 18 months. That means even if you don’t go in and manually delete your location history from Google — or pause it altogether — you can make sure Google routinely deletes where you’ve been. Google knows an aw

Google tracks your every move, but a new tool is rolling out that lets you force it to delete where you've been

Speaking during Google IO in May, Google CEO Sundar Pichai promised that his company would soon begin rolling out new tools that give users more control over their privacy and the data Google collects. The first tool, which let you set up a way to automatically delete your web and app activity history, rolled out on May 8.

Now another one is beginning to roll out, and you should keep an eye out for it to hit your account.

Google said Wednesday it is activating a feature that will automatically delete your location history after a specific amount of time, either every three months or every 18 months. That means even if you don’t go in and manually delete your location history from Google — or pause it altogether — you can make sure Google routinely deletes where you’ve been.

Google knows an awful lot about you, particularly your location if you use Google Maps or other Google services that require your GPS coordinates. And all of your locations, often updated several times a day, are stored online, complete with a map pinpointing everywhere you’ve been. It’s a creepy level of detail.

Google said on Wednesday the feature is rolling out now, so it might not show up right away. However, you can check if it’s live for you by doing this:

Amazon will soon let you ask Alexa to delete your voice recordings — here's how

Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, speaks to a group of Amazon employees that are veterans during an Amazon Veterans Day celebration on Monday, November 12, 2018.

Amazon on Wednesday announced that it will soon allow people to ask Alexa to delete some of the things it saves when you ask it questions. It will launch with a new “Alexa Privacy Hub” that will give users more information on “how Echo devices are designed and the controls you have over your Alexa experience,” Amazon said.

Amazon stores every conversation you have with Alexa after you speak the “Alexa” wake word and you currently have to open the Alexa app on your phone to delete your voice history.

As of today, you can say: “Alexa delete everything I said today.” In the coming weeks, you’ll also be able to say “Alexa, delete what I just said.” However, the feature won’t let you delete your entire voice history, but you should still use it if you’re concerned about having your recordings stored on Amazon’s servers.

Amazon has thousands of workers around the world listening to Alexa conversations, according to a report from Bloomberg in April. Amazon transcribes those conversations and shares them to help improve Alexa’s voice recognition, the report said. You can turn off the option that automatically sends voice snippets to Amazon, however.

Correction: This article has been updated with the correct timing for when the new Alexa features will be launched.

How to force Google to automatically delete the information it saves about what you do online

Google has begun rolling out a feature that allows you to configure how long it can save data from all of the Google services you use, like maps, search and everything you do online. Until now, you had to manually delete this data or turn it off entirely. Deleting it means Google doesn’t always have enough information about you to make recommendations on what it thinks you’ll like, or where you might want to go. Now, you can tell Google to automatically delete personal information after three mo

Until now, you had to manually delete this data or turn it off entirely. Deleting it means Google doesn’t always have enough information about you to make recommendations on what it thinks you’ll like, or where you might want to go.

Now, you can tell Google to automatically delete personal information after three months or 18 months. Here’s how you can do that.
