How to Easily Review and Delete Google Search History

In this world of utter technology, you are tracked in some way or the other. The tracking organization maybe your own government or cybercriminals, who have a hell lot of hacking tricks rounded up in their sleeves.

You might be surprised to learn that just by allowing the GPS location on your device, your current location can be tracked and Google search history is another level of a Pandora box. So, what's not impossible?

In between this cat and mouse play, Google is the common element that connects all of us. Google, with a 92.3 percent market share in the search engine, sits at the top of the web search and makes it a hot spot for all the online activities that we do.

Also, whatever we search for is saved on our systems and as well as on the Google servers. Our online exposure to the web is draped by the advertising companies who track and collect our data. Even if you are using the incognito window, there is quite a possibility that you are being looked upon. Therefore, it becomes paramount for us to delete the web browser history and Google search history.

To make it easier for users, Google has recently allowed anyone with their account logged in to delete the search history from the Google search itself. So, today I will be discussing how to review and delete the Google search history and where Google has placed the new option.
But before that, you need to learn to limit your browsing activity.
