The setting is still rolling out and might not be available to some account as of now. But it will roll out for everyone around the world within a week.
Why is it important?
This feature is a big win for Google users who frequently search their keywords to get relevant data. It can really hurt the analytics for Advertisers but for user end, it is more secure as no one in the world could ever track what you have been searching.
We recommend setting it up at 3-month schedule because advertisers see one year pattern to serve you the retargeted ads. But this will eliminate all sorts of Privacy issues.
