Google Lens is a type of camera functionality developed by Google to help detect QR codes, text, or objects. Many times we come across fruits or objects, and we do not know their names or uses or we get a QR code but have no means to scan through the QR code and decode it. Nevertheless, Google released the Google lens in October 2017 to help us understand our world better just with the help of a photo.

Google lens works hand in hand with the camera on your mobile device so that it scans through the object text or QR codes for quick answers.

However, most users are still not happy with the fact that Google saves all these personal data, and like other activities Google lens history is saved separately. Even though this blocks third-party apps from viewing your history without your permission most users are still not satisfied and may choose a more permanent approach like deleting their Google lens activities.
