If you're a privacy enthusiast and are anxious that Google may be storing your location data (where you've been or where you're going next) and utilizing it to track you. This option will be available in the location history area. This indicates that Google will still carry out the usual data collection technique but there is an option for you to get rid of the same automatically. Previously users would have the ability to turn off all tracking, but hat simply denied them the benefits of Google's optimisations. The GIF in the Tweet below shows you how this will work, but basically you are looking for a button that lets you "Choose to delete automatically". It can vary between three and 18 months. European Union regulators also fined Google $5 Bn previous year after finding it guilty of compelling manufacturers to pre-install Google apps including Google Play and Google Chrome on Android devices. The new feature has been under testing for a few months now. Google looked forward to working with the CCI "to demonstrate how Android has led to more competition and innovation, not less", the company said at the time. The review acknowledged that Chrome offers users many adjustable privacy settings, but, Fowler wrote, "its controls often feel like a shell game that results in us sharing more personal data".
