Instead of the options to delete everything in the last 4 weeks, I would find it more beneficial to delete everything older than 4 weeks. This would include all choices by adding the word "Older'.
What is the reason? I pretty much remember the last 4 weeks but not likely to remember any sites older than that. Could have both options "older" and as written.
