    Exclamation Remove Your Google Search History - Reminder!

    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.

    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.
    It also does not change the fact that any information gathered and stored by Google
    could be sought by law enforcement.

    With Web History enabled, Google will keep these records indefinitely; with it disabled,
    they will be partially anonymized after 18 months, and certain kinds of uses, including
    sending you customized search results, will be prevented.[/SIZE]

    Here's how you can do that:

    1. Sign into your Google account

    2. Go to:

    Code:
    https://www.google.com/history
    1. Click "Remove all Web History"

    4. Click "OK"



    Note that removing your Web History also pauses it.
    Web History will remain off until you enable it again.
    If you have several Google accounts, you will need to do this for each of them.
