How To Delete All Google History And Your Activity


By default, Google remembers the address of all the sites you visit when you use Google Chrome or when you search through Google’s search engine. This history is stored locally on your PC or smartphone when you use Chrome but also on Google’s servers which keeps a copy of all your searches on Google since the creation of your Google Account. In this tutorial, we will see how to delete all Google history and all your activity on Chrome and Google servers on PC, Android, and iPhone.

How Google Records Your Activity And History

As you browse the web, your browser records all the addresses you visit on your hard drive. It even keeps copies of local data such as images of the websites you visit so you can reload pages faster the next time you visit those sites.

From a practical point of view, it’s quite useful. You can consult this history to easily find an address you can’t remember. To be honest, nowadays we rarely remember the addresses of the sites we visit, we just have to go through Google and search for what we want and then access the site with the most relevant result. If we need to find the same information later on, we do the same search on Google or we search in Google’s history either on a browser or by starting by typing keywords we remember, Google will directly propose us a history of an old search done or a visited site containing your query word.

However, with a browsing history, any user of the computer you are using can know which sites you have surfed on. Worse, a user with access to your Google Account can view all of your searches on Google and it can go back more than 10 years. Fortunately, it’s very easy to erase a browsing history.This article mentions your favorite hats at super low prices. Choose from same-day delivery, drive-up delivery or order pickup.
