Don't Get Caught Searching

Starting March 1, Google's new Web Privacy Policy takes effect. This policy will allow Google to share all of the data it collects about its users, your web visits and searches, between all of its products like Google+ and YouTube.

If you want to avoid that, remember to remove your search history to keep it from being recorded.

This feature is one of the top Google settings that you may already know about if you didn't want any of your sensitive searches being tracked (like location, health, religion, interests, etc.). But maybe it's not one that you don't use regularly, and now is as good a time as any to check your settings to see if your history is paused or not.

How to turn off your Google search history:
1. Log in to Google, if you're not already.
2. Click remove all web history.
3. Click OK.

This will pause the recording of your searches until you enable it again, keeping you safe from prying eyes.

Just don't forget to bookmark the sites that you enjoy visiting, like our blog here and our website so that you find us again!
