Google is one of the world’s most popular search engines, with billions of searches made every day. And as we constantly browse the internet, our search history can quickly accumulate, often containing sensitive or personal information that we may not want others to see. Whether you want to protect your privacy or simply declutter your search history, it’s important to know how to delete your history on Google. In this comprehensive article, we’ll guide you through the steps to clear your history on Google and keep your online activity private.
Before we dive in, it’s important to note that clearing your history on Google will not delete the information from your device or the websites you’ve visited. It only removes the history from your browser, so the websites you’ve visited will still have record of your visit. Also, if you’re signed in to a Google account, your history will only be deleted from the device you’re using. It will still be visible if you sign in on another device.
To delete your history on Google, follow these simple steps:
Sign in to your Google account
To view and delete your search history, you’ll need to be signed in to your Google account. If you’re not already signed in, simply go to google.com and click on the ‘Sign In’ button on the top right corner. Enter your login details and click ‘Sign In’.
Access your search history
Once you’re signed in, click on the ‘Menu’ button (three horizontal lines) on the top left corner of the page. From the drop-down menu, click on ‘History’. This will take you to your Google search history page.
Clear your history
On your search history page, click on the ‘Menu’ button (three vertical dots) on the top right corner of the page. From the drop-down menu, click on ‘Delete activity by’. A pop-up window will appear, allowing you to select a date range for the history you want to delete. You can also choose to delete your entire search history by selecting ‘All time’ from the drop-down menu. Once you’ve selected the desired date range, click on ‘Delete’ and confirm your action. Your history will be deleted.
Pause your history
If you want to prevent Google from saving your future searches, you can pause your history. Simply go back to the ‘History’ page and click on the ‘Menu’ button (three vertical dots) on the top right corner. From the drop-down menu, click on ‘Activity controls’. This will take you to a page where you can manage your activity controls. Toggle off the button next to ‘Web & App Activity’ to pause your history.
Delete specific items from your history
If you don’t want to delete your entire history, you have the option to delete specific items. On your search history page, simply click on the ‘Menu’ button (three vertical dots) next to the item you want to delete. From the drop-down menu, select ‘Delete from history’. This will remove the selected item from your history.
Delete your location history
Google also tracks your location history if you have it enabled. To delete your location history, go to ‘Activity controls’ and toggle off the button next to ‘Location History’. You can also delete specific locations by clicking on the ‘Menu’ button (three vertical dots) next to the location and selecting ‘Delete from history’.
In conclusion, knowing how to delete your history on Google is essential in protecting your privacy and keeping your online activity private. By following these simple steps, you can easily clear your search history and control what information Google has access to. Remember to regularly clear your history and pause your activity controls to prevent Google from saving your future searches. Stay safe and protect your privacy online.
