Google follows you on and off the web in many ways, which is not surprising. But you can regain some control. Want to keep Google from discovering you? It’s almost impossible: the advertising giant collects data about you every time you search the web, every time you visit a website, every time you use your Android phone – however you want – Google collects data about you. That’s the price you pay for getting so many services without spending money, but there are ways to limit the information Google collects about you.

How do I Delete my Google Search History?

  • Go to “My Business” on your computer.
  • At the top right of the page, select More -> Delete Activity From.
  • Under “Delete by date,” select the down arrow -> All times.
  • Select “Delete”.

If you only want to delete certain items or activities, you can also do this under “My Activity” :

  • Scroll through the day. Select “More” -> “Item view” at the top right of the page.
  • Search or use filters.
  • Select More -> Delete on the item you wish to delete.
  • Scroll through the day. Select “More” -> “Item view” at the top right of the page.
  • Search or use filters.
  • And remember: even if it’s boring, always read the small print if you can. And if you need help deciding whether you really need to check the “I accept” box on almost all websites, you can use the tosdr.org service, which evaluates companies’ terms and conditions for transparency and user-friendliness, to make an informed decision.

Conclusion

The best way to limit Google’s data collection is to delete your account, but you don’t have to go that far to stop the data flow. Can’t live without Gmail or Maps? You can restrict some of the collection by switching to certain non-Google products and services when it’s convenient for you. For example, forget Chrome for Firefox or Brave. Use DuckDuckGo instead of Google search. If you can afford it, throw away your Android for iPhone. And so on and so forth.

You can delete your account completely – but even then, Google can still track you using “passive data”, even if Google says it won’t associate your name or other identifiable details with that profile.

That’s why a more proactive approach may be necessary for those who don’t have a Google Account. As with any online activity, ad blockers such as AdBlock Plus and privacy enhancements such as Disconnect or Ghostery stop surveillance systems such as cookies and social trackers. On Android, the Firefox Focus browser integrates such tools; on the desktop, the Brave browser is recommended.
