Google has announced this week a new function that allows the 'mass elimination' of all the information collected in the Chronology ofGoogle Mapsand Location History, to quickly search and delete several registered places at once.
Timeline is a private query tool that uses User Location History to help you easily remember places and routes you have visited. InAndroidIt also allows you to share them with friends.
It is also a section from which the user can consult and manage their location history, as well as edit specific entries or delete period information or delete all history data, as explained from Google on the Help page.
Chronology data deletion
Google users can delete all the information corresponding to their activity on Google Maps, either the data collected on a specific day, the last month or all searches made from your Google account if you have the location history activated. With the latest version of Google Maps, you can also perform a massive data deletion.
To delete all location history, you must open the applicationGoogle Mapsand in the upper left corner click on Menu and then Chronology. Then, select Settings and privacy, choose Location settings and click on 'Delete all location history'. This will erase all the information at once.
You can also delete a range from the history, following the same steps as in the previous case, but in this case choose the option ofDelete location history range.
If what you want to do is delete a day, you have to go to the Menu,Chronologyand choose the icon ofcalendar. The user will only have to select the day they want to delete and it will disappear from their location history.
Finally, a specific stop can also be eliminated. Following the same procedure as in the previous formulas, you have to selectRemove the stop of the day, and there will be no trace of this information.
By removing part or all of theLocation HistoryUsers will lose some personalized Google experiences such as recommendations based on places they have already visited or real-time information on places they frequent.
