Easier to Delete Google History
While Google has always given the option for users to delete a part or all of their past history, it’s easier than ever to efficiently remove your search history. Now, all that you have to do is head over to the “My Activity” page and view the history. It is here that you will view the searches that have been conducted and the sites you visited. Click on the button with the triple dot to get rid of any item you don’t want on the list. This is how you will remove it from your history.

Apple Makes it Easier to Get your Own Data
Since GDPR has become effective, Apple has made the process to access your own data much easier. You can also delete or deactivate your data collection at any time. Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, has said that he has made security and privacy a top priority at Apple. Cook describes the right to privacy and data protection as a human right. They will soon make it much easier for people to manage their privacy settings. For example, Apple has put these tools in a centralized location, and you go to this section and choose the data you want shared.
The ultimate aim of these new regulations will be that Europeans have far more control over their own information and how companies can use it. A business that fails to comply with these regulations could face hefty fines that could be as high as four percent of its annual revenue. Since major online companies, like Facebook and Google, are worldwide, consumers from around the world can expect some much-needed help in guarding their privacy.
