How to Delete the Web Tracking Google is Keeping...

From an article located here. Take a quick moment and follow the instructions.

Google has begun rolling out a feature that allows you to configure how long it can save data from all of the Google services you use, like maps, search and everything you do online.

Until now, you had to manually delete this data or turn it off entirely. Deleting it means Google doesn’t always have enough information about you to make recommendations on what it thinks you’ll like, or where you might want to go.

Now, you can tell Google to automatically delete personal information after three months or 18 months. Here’s how you can do that.

Visit and log in if you haven’t already.
Choose “Data & Personalization” on the left-side panel.
Select the arrow next to “Web & App Activity.”
Choose “Manage Activity.”
Select “Choose to delete automatically.”
Select either 18 months or three months.

It isn't perfect, but it is better than nothing.  Pass this along to your friends and family.
