If your web history is enabled you will see a list of any searches you’ve made or sites you’ve visited recently.
Click the button “Remove All Web History” then “Ok”
Your history will be free and clear of any exploitation from Google. This will stop Google from any further tracking of your web history. If for any reason you change your mind at any point and want your history tracked go ahead and click that blue button “resume”.
Ya, might as well. I never use that web history info anyway why should they?
Great how too Star!!! With the privacy policies changing, it’s imperative we pay attention to things like web history and how we are browsing (signed in vs not signed in).
I need to go do this NOW!
I understand that the web history may (for the time being) be open and public to just Google products but, there’s absolutely no reason for me to share or make that public / saved for Google to cache. It’s like buying a car, I come to the net because I know what I want and what I’m looking for- no need to sway or distract me from my search (or purchase).
Mine isn’t enabled….so I guess I don’t have to worry about that. But this is good stuff – I gotta pass this along! Thanks!
your “how to” star was very easy for me to do it, thank you.
Thanks for the tip.
