Google now lets you automatically delete your personal data, such as activity on Android apps, web searches, and websites you visit in Chrome. The feature, available on the PC for some time, can now also be used on mobile. By setting the function, the old information is erased on time. Subsequently, activities that reach the selected "expiration date" three or 18 months will be automatically removed without the user having to worry about repeating the process.
In the following tutorial, check out how to automatically delete your web and app activity history from your Google account on your smartphone. The procedure was performed by Safari on an iPhone 8 with iOS 12, but the tips also apply to users of Android devices.
