Everything About Your Web Search History




Can you guess what I am going to discuss here? No, don't worry! I will solve your confusion. I think reading the headline many of you have understand what thing is going to be discussed here. Here I discuss about our web history. No need to say what is history. Everyone has idea more or less. History is nothing but the records of data that what you had done in past. If someone ask you some question who was the first president of USA? Who was the first Prime Minister of India? What happened in the Battle of Waterloo? If you have historical knowledge regarding this particular field you will have right answer. So this the rough idea about history. Don't fear I am not going to ask any historical questions.

I am here to discuss only about Web History. I have asked some of my friends who are always glued on internet about web history. But everyone fails to provide me answer. They never hears this name. Reversely, they ask me what is it? Many internet users do not hear about web history. 

A Web History a place of your Google account where everything is tracked and stored about your activity on the internet. When anyone create a Google account, his Web History is automatically turned on. Many of you never know this. If you want to check your web history just click this link https://history.google.com/history/ and login to your Google account with your default username and password. Once you have lodged in you will see all your activity according to different categories.
There are categories like Web, Image, Videos, News, Shopping, Ads, Maps, Blogs, Books, Visual Search, Travel, Finance and Bookmarks. You find your searched data in this 13 categories.

If you wish to delete the history of any desired category then select the desired category and click the checkbox against Remove items and then click Remove items. To see older data just click the Older button located right hand side below your Settings button (gear icon).

How to Turn Off your web history?

If you do not want anything to be tracked and stored in your web history then the better option is to turn off your web history. To turn off the web history just click the setting button (gear icon) and then select Settings. After that click Turn off. Once you click turn off your web history is turned off. Nothing will be tracked and nothing will be stored in your web history regarding your activity on internet. So I recommend you to turn off your web history so that nothing should be tracked.
How to Delete all your web history?

Deleting all your Google activity nothing will remain in your web history. Everything tracked and stored in past in your web history will be deleted permanently. In the above picture you can see two rect colored rectangle. One is Turn off and another os delete all. To delete all your past Google activity permanently click the setting button i.e, gear icon and then select Settings. After that click click delete all and then again click Delete all.
