How to delete google search history: Gradually, many people are getting more conscious about the security of their personal information shared online. Many consumers are looking forward to limit their online activities to take preventive measures to secure their personal information. The best way to manage your personal information online is to reduce how companies and advertisers monitor and store the data they gather from you. You can limit these advertisers and companies from tracking your personal data is by deleting the Google browser history and search history. This will limit the amount of data you let others fetch about you online.

Deleting the complete web browser history may not help you eliminate all the information which Google stores about you but for that you need to delete some data individually like location history or maps activity. These features can be turned OFF.

Even after deleting all/some of the activity, Google still continues to keep records of your data as how you utilized the web browser, your searches etc. It will also maintain the record of what time and date you visit a particular site and something you searched for. Of course it will not have exact details of what precisely you searched for.

Google ensures that your data gets deleted permanently after you erase it completely.
