How to Clear Your Google Search History

Clear Your Google Search History – Tired of being tracked across the internet? Maybe it’s time to delete your Google search history.

This article explains how to delete your Google history from your Google account, the Google Chrome web browser, the Google iOS or Android app, or the Google app.

How to Delete the Search History From Your Google Account

To delete your Google search history entirely, you need to do so directly from your Google Account. Clearing your browser history won’t erase all the info that Google tracks and saves to your account. Here’s how to delete past search history and future search history from your Google Account.

To delete past Google search history:

  • Open up any browser, go to Google.com, and log into your account.
