GOOGLE will now let you automatically delete location and activity history.

The search giant introduced a new autodelete feature for location, app and web history.

As opposed to manually having to view their histories, with new feature Google users will be able pick a length og time, either three months or 18 months, that Google will save the data.

Any older data will be deleted automatically. The option to let Google keep the data until you manually delete it will also remain.

You can also still chose to to pause Google's  web and app activity tracking.

In addition to helping Google with ads,  the company says this data allows it to provide better search results and recommendations in apps like Google Maps.

Google says the controls will begin rolling out  ''in the coming weeks''.

How to delete your Google location data?

.-  Open your  Google account.
.-  Scroll and tap Data  & personalization.
.-  Under Activity Control, tap Web & App Activity.
,-  Select  Choose  to delete automatically.
.-  Tap  Choose  how  Long to keep  Web & App Activity.
.-  Tap to select either  18 months  or  3 months , and save.

Remember, this is rolling out to users, so don't be alarmed if you don't see these options immediately.
