How To Review And Delete Google Search History

In this world of utter technology, you are tracked in some way or the other. The tracking organization may be your own government or cybercriminals, who have a hell lot of hacking tricks rounded up in their sleeves. You might be surprised by knowing the fact that just by allowing the GPS location on your device, your current location can be tracked and Google search history is another level of pandora box.
