You can also manually change the setting and choose that the data will be deleted after three months, but in any case in order to activate the function you need to have the position history active. All this is valid only for new users or for those who activate the location history for the first time: the old users who already had the location history active, however, will have to manually activate the automatic deletion of data (here), always choosing whether to keep them for a year and a half or for three months.

This function is active on several Google products, including YouTube, where however the default data deletion setting keeps the history for 3 years before deleting it. Again you can change it manually, choosing between three months or a year and a half. Pichai wrote that the function is not active on services such as Google Drive, Google Photos and Gmail, “which are designed to safely store your content”.
