Alphabet’s Google said it would automatically delete records of users’ visits to confidential sites, including abortion clinics, in response to growing concerns that the data could be used to prosecute those seeking reproductive care and other personal services.

The internet search and advertising leader said that the Location History feature on its services is turned off by default, but even if it is enabled, the company’s policy, starting in the coming weeks, will be to quickly delete records of visits to places that many people would prefer to keep in private secrecy.

“Some places that people go to, including medical facilities such as counseling centers, domestic violence shelters, abortion clinics, infertility centers, addiction treatment facilities, weight loss clinics, cosmetic surgery clinics, and others, can be particularly personal. Google said in a post on its website.
