You need to open the Google Account page from where you can change various account related settings.

As this functionality is account specific, you need to enter the email ID from which you want to remove all the history at a predefined time.
After doing that successfully, you should see an option called Manage your data & personalization under Privacy & personalization. Click on it.
Then, click on the Manage your activity controls in the Activity controls box.
