How to delete Google Bard activity
Here's how to manage your Google Bard history
Google Bard is now here! It is technically still in a testing phase but Bard is available in 180 counties. Google Bard AI chatbot looks to rival the likes of ChatGPT, offering users explanations, answers, and plenty of information on how to do just about anything.
The truth is that some people may want to ask Google Bard some rather strange questions or just like to keep their general internet history clean, so don’t worry, it is relatively simple to clear Google Bard’s activity.
What data does Google Bard store?
You can turn Google Bard activity on and off but when it’s on, Google stores your Bard activity in your Google account. When looking into the history, you can view your prompts, delete overall activity, and as mentioned, turn it off.
Google does not sell your personal information. Bard selects a subset of conversations you have and uses tools to help remove personally identifiable information. The conversation samples are then reviewed by trained employees and kept for up to three years, separately from your account.

How does Google Bard use data?
Google Bard does indeed use the data inputted into it to help train its software. Here is a breakdown of how Bard uses the data it receives:
- Google uses its stored data to analyze the relationships between words in a sentence. In doing this it can identify patterns and in urn improve Bard’s ability to respond in a human like manner.
- Stored data is also used by Google to help improve the accuracy of results which bard can create meaning as time goes on Bard’s answers will get more and more accurate.
- Linked to the previous point is the fact that Google will also use data to help their AI software identify entities in text. This could be names of people, place, or organisations and should also help to improve the accuracy of the results you receive.
