Google just released a new privacy feature everyone should be using

Google tracks everything you do online and uses that data to serve personalized ads. That’s why most of its apps and services are offered to people free of charge; it’s a tradeoff that many people appreciate. Despite the nature of its services though, Google has taken various steps in recent years to improve user privacy and security on its devices. Fueled in part by Google’s own privacy-related scandals from the past and in part by Apple’s massive privacy push, Google’s privacy features have improved year after year. This concerns protecting data on Android and in Google apps, as well as new features to control how personal data is shared with Google online. The latest addition to Google’s privacy toolset that users should know about concerns Google Search.

That’s the product countless people use when browsing the web, and it provides a treasure trove of data for Google. The company made it possible for users to delete and auto-delete their Search histories with ease a few years ago. But Google now added another protective layer to Search history, which should come in handy to people who use Search on various products, including shared devices. You can now use a password to protect the page that shows your entire search history.
