Google: auto-delete controls for your Location History and activity data

Google's David Monsees (Product Manager, Search) and Marlo McGriff (Product Manager, Maps) announce:
Quote:
You can already use your Google Account to access simple on/off controls for Location History and Web & App Activity, and if you choose—to delete all or part of that data manually. In addition to these options, we’re announcing auto-delete controls that make it even easier to manage your data.

Choose a time limit for how long you want your activity data to be saved—3 or 18 months—and any data older than that will be automatically deleted from your account on an ongoing basis. These controls are coming first to Location History and Web & App Activity and will roll out in the coming weeks.

That's nothing more than fixing what had been broken in the first place.
