Google History
Clear your Google Web History before the big privacy change

Do you know if Google is tracking your Web activity? If you have a Google account (for, say, Gmail) and have not specifically located and paused the Web History setting, then the search giant is keeping track of your searches and the sites you visited. This data has been separated from other Google products, but on March 1 it will be shared across all of the Google products you use when Google's new privacy policy goes into effect.

If you'd like to prevent Google from combining this potentially sensitive data with the information it has collected from your YouTube, Google+, and other Google accounts, you can remove your Web History and stop it from being recorded moving forward.



After signing into your Google account, go to Google History in your browser. (Alternatively, you can choose Account Settings from the pull-down menu in the upper-right corner of a Google product such as Gmail, Google+, or Google.com. From the Account Settings page, scroll down to the Services header and click on the "Go to web history" link.) If your Web History is enabled, you'll see a list of recent searches and sites visited. Click the gray Remove all Web History button at the top of the page and a subsequent OK button to clear your Web History.



This action also pauses the Web History feature so that it will no longer track your Web searches and whereabouts. If you'd like to fire it back up, simply click the blue Resume button. ~ Matt Elliott


When I checked mine I found Google had a web history on me dating back to 2006. Every Google Search and web site I visited while logged into google over the last 6 years was in there. :shocked:

Have no account with gmail, Goo+ or Goodotcom. Does this mean I'm unaffected, for now?    :undecided:

The car shop uses Gmail but my friend is smart enough to have shut that off when he set it up.

I'm done with them. Stopped using my gmail account about a month ago, switched over to gmx to use as my online email account.

A lot of those reviews sound like "operator error" scenarios. What do you want for free? I've been using it for a few weeks now - email comes in, email goes out, so it does what it's supposed to do. I only use it as my junk account anyway.

Recently took up fastmail for my webmail. Decidied on (pretty much a nominal) fee/subscription. No ads, good filtering, high limits, works really well. Just didn't feel like jumping into the gmail pool...  :undecided:

Agreed. There's so many free services out there I don't feel inclined to pay for one. If I can send & receive email that's good enough for me. I only use it for junk stuff and use my personal domain/hosting for "real" emails with "real" people.

True... it's like parking and sex. Why pay, when if you hunt around you can get it for free?

Atheists use free webmail, too, without even a second thought or any sort of self-inflicted guilt whatsoever.

My (somewhat timid) contention is that you 'pay' in other ways. Via a thousand tiny cuts.  :shrug:  As I said, to all intents and porpoises, it's a very nominal fee.  Fastmail is clutter-free, fast, large storage. And reasonably secure; if the reviews are to be believed.    Just sayin'  (©david)
