How to Access Google “My Activity” on Android?

In the My Activity section of your Android phone, you can manage your recent Google search history and more. Here’s where you may look for it.

Using Google services is as normal to many of us as using electricity. We use it to obtain answers, store images and videos, get directions, surf the web, attend online meetings, send and receive payments, and so much more.

When you use services like YouTube or Google, you leave a trail of information behind. This information is kept in your Google account, which you can see and manage at any time. Let’s look at how you can use Google My Activity to examine and manage your data.

On Android, how can I get access to my activity?

  1. Activate your device Settings.
  2. Go to Google > Account management > Data & privacy.
  3. Select My Activity from the History menu.
  4. You’ll be able to access the following options after you’ve arrived:
  5. Web and App Activity: This includes your Google search history, Google Assistant talks, audio recordings, and the apps you utilized, among other things.
  6. Location History: This includes places you’ve recently visited, cities you’ve visited, excursions you’ve taken, time spent commuting, and so on.
  7. What you searched for on YouTube, the videos you viewed, your uploads and playlists, the videos you liked, and the comments you left are all part of your YouTube history.

As you can undoubtedly imagine, this is a lot of information—enough for Google to follow your Google product usage. This can include search results, advertisements, travel recommendations, and recommendations on places to dine, purchase, and more.

With My Activity, you can keep track of your data.

Google makes it simple for you to maintain control over your data and manage it at any time.

You can access and modify your Google historical activity under My Activity, which includes your search history, YouTube history, and location history. If you’d like, you may check your Google history, pause it, delete certain parts of it, or completely erase it.
