Google now lets you automatically delete your location history and search data

You already know that if you use a GPS-enabled Android phone, or any smartphone with Google services running, every move of yours is being tracked and logged; right? Well, if you didn’t, now you do. It is an unnerving thing. While there has always been a manual way to delete your location history and search data buried deep under layers of menu, Google is now rolling out a feature that will automatically delete your location and activity data every 3 or 18 months.

The rollout of the new feature starts from today and will go on over the next few weeks.

You are limited to options of 3 or 18 months. But then, half bread is better than nothing. You now have some more control over your data. Set your preferred interval and go your way.
