How to stop Google from keeping a record of your online search

If you have a Google account, Google may know everything you ever looked for on the web. That is, unless you turn off Google's collecting of all your searches and clean out the web history they’ve kept.

Do you use Gmail, the Chrome browser, or other Google service? Then Google may be keeping a record of every search query you make.

That's right; if you have a Google account, Google may know everything you ever looked for on the web. That is, unless you turn off Google's collecting of all your searches and clean out the web history they’ve kept.

Turn off Google Web History

Delete items in Google Web History

What does Google do with this data? Why, they sell the information to advertisers, of course. Or maybe, they also give it to the government. Who knows?
