What this means is that information from your web history searches and the web sites you visit is going to be combined with information from other Google products like YouTube and Gmail.
If you’re sensitive about your personal information being shared on the Web, then here is an easy way to turn off your search history and stop it from being recorded:
- Browse to Google.com, and Sign In to your Google account.
- In the upper-right corner of the page, click the dropdown menu by your name.
- Select “Accounts Settings”
- Find “Services Section”
- Under “Services”, there is a section which says “View, enable, disable web history.” Click the link next to it which says: “Go to Web History.”
- Select “Remove all Web History”
When you click on “Remove all Web History,” a message appears that says “Web History is Paused.” What this means is that although Google will continue collecting and permanently storing information about your web history, it will make all data anonymous: Google will not connect your Web History information with your online accounts, and will therefore be unable to send you customized search results.
