How to Remove Your Google Search History Before Google's New Privacy Policy Takes Effect

It is important to note that disabling Web History in your Google account will not prevent Google from gathering and storing this information and using it for internal purposes. More information at the end of this post.

On March 1st, Google will implement its new, unified privacy policy, which will affect data Google has collected on you prior to March 1st as well as data it collects on you in the future. Until now, your Google Web History (your Google searches and sites visited) was cordoned off from Google's other products. This protection was especially important because search data can reveal particularly sensitive information about you, including facts about your location, interests, age, sexual orientation, religion, health concerns, and more. If you want to keep Google from combining your Web History with the data they have gathered about you in their other products, such as YouTube or Google Plus, you may want to remove all items from your Web History and stop your Web History from being recorded in the future.

How to Remove Your Google Search History

1. Log in to your Google account.

2. Go to https://www.youtube.com

3. Click on your icon.

4. Click "Video Manager"

5. Click "History"

6. Click "Clear all viewing history."

7. Click "Pause viewing history."

8. Click "Search History."

9. Click "Clear all search history."

10. Click "Pause search history."



Make sure you do this before March 1st!!!

Cheers

I did this, but on youtube when I cleared both history, and viewing history, there was no option to pause history for either of them. What was the reason to pause, even though I didn't have that option? How will this effect the outcome? Will be the same, right?

Google history was never turned on in the frirst place, so not worried about that.

Thanks, Marduk. :flop:
