The big “G” Google keeps record of everything you’ve ever searched on its platform. Just as it has the archive of what you searched for, it also gives you the privilege to delete or download all your search history from Google.
As at April 2018, Google said it had 1.4 Billion active Gmail users around the world. That’s to tell us the huge number of data Google has.
The good part:
“You can delete past searches, browsing history, and other activity from your Google Account. You’re in control of what’s stored in My Activity, and you can stop saving most activity at any time,” Google said.
