I bet you didn’t know the Google app on your Android device keeps a screenshot of your most recent searches. For every search you make using the Google app pre-installed on your phone, a screenshot is kept on file so that you can re-visit it at a later time.
The idea behind this is according to GHacks, is to provide an easy access to what you searched previously on your local device. It offers convenient access to your previous search results which is useful in a case where you need to look up addresses or phone numbers you’ve searched up online before without having to run the whole search again.
The downside to this otherwise useful feature is that it is enabled by default and may raise some privacy concerns.
