Soon You Can Tell Google Assistant To Clean Your Search History

You could ask Google Assistant to remove your search history (voice-command) from your account, like all the things you said to it the day before

Usually, in our daily, we give away data thoughtlessly. You allow your device to remember that unsecured, free wi-fi connection, you gave your home address, name, and email away. As modern technology finds its way to our lives, it looks like we are losing control of our data.

New Security Features

This month is the month for Cybersecurity Awareness, and the search giant has released some new security features. From a recent blog post, Google has announced many enhancements with some products to protect your personal data. That includes the new ability to control the data of your Google Assistant, and how long the virtual assistant will store it.

It means that you could ask Google Assistant to remove your search history (voice-command) from your account. For example, you could tell it to delete all the things you said to it the day before or delete all the historical search data. Together with the new features, they have also improved the Assistant's ability to answer the questions on how to protect, store, and handles your data.

New Features Will Be On Automatically

Google's Director of Product Management, Privacy, and Data Protection Office, Eric Miraglia, has commented on the post. She said that we would not need to turn on these new features manually. They will work automatically once you ask Google Assistant to execute them. If you command the Assistant to delete more than the data of a week, it will lead you to the settings page for you to complete the order.

Later this week, Google will release this feature in English, then other languages will follow up next month.

These security updates from the tech giant might be an effort to take back the user's trust. Currently, it is facing several privacy concerns about its data usages and voice assistant.
