Today is the day to delete your browsing history::

If you have a Google account (gmail, Android, Google Search, YouTube, etc.), Google has changed their Privacy Policy today, and everything that you have ever searched for in a Google search will now be publicly available unless you do something about it.

So if you want to clear out your web history and keep Google from keeping PUBLIC record of where you search, here are some simple steps to help you out:

  • Go to your Web History and enter your password if prompted to do so.
  • If your web history is ON, the list of sites that you have visited that have been recorded by Google will be displayed (if you haven't done this recently, it is a trip down memory lane).
  • Click on the "Remove All Web History" button. 
  • They will ask you (because you really don't mean it, right?) if you are ". . . sure you want to clear your entire web history? Your web history will also be paused."  Oh, yes, YOU'RE SURE.
  • You should then see "Your search history is currently empty" and that your "Web History is paused"  STAY AWAY FROM THE RESUME BUTTON.  LEAVE IT PAUSED.
  • You are now done.
