Do you ever find yourself Googling something you’ve already looked up? Have you noticed that the first search result is usually an answer to a previous question? This is because Google stores searches in order to target ads based on your browsing history — but these webpages aren’t available on the web. What if, in a few years, they’re an AI-powered software?
What is Web History
If you delete something from a Google account, like a post on a blog or a search result, it’s gone forever. However, if you ask Google to keep your deleted history, it may still store some information related to the deleted items. This includes content from Web History (for example, results from prior searches), pages you’ve visited and photos you’ve uploaded.
How to Delete Your History from Google
If you’ve ever Googled yourself and noticed a histor1c from your past that you no longer want search engines to pull up, there’s a quick fix for that.
To delete your Google history:
-Open the Google website.
-Type “history” into the address bar.
-Click on the history logo in the top right corner of the page.
-Under “History settings,” click on the “Delete personal info and content” link.
-Enter your login information and click on the “Delete history” button.
Delete Web History in Firefox and Chrome
Deleting your web history from Google is easy, but it’s not available in every browser. Firefox and Chrome both offer the option to delete your history, but it’s hidden away in different menus.
In Firefox, you can access the History menu by pressing Control and H. In Chrome, you can press Ctrl and H.
Once you’re in the History menu, scroll down until you see Delete Web History. Select it and confirm your decision by clicking OK. You won’t be able to do this if your browser is private mode or incognito.
If you want to keep copies of your recent history so that you can easily restore a page that you’ve bookmarked, Google has a similar tool called Site History. You can access Site History by going to https://accounts.google.com/sitehistory and signing in with your Google account.
Deleting Browsing Data on Mac or Windows 10
Google is known for its search engine, but what you may not know is that they also have a web browser called Chrome. Chrome has a feature called “Delete browsing data.” This feature allows you to delete all the data from your Google account so that it will not be stored on their servers.
Deleting browsing data may seem like a small thing, but it can actually be very important. Suppose you want to delete some incriminating information that you accidentally saved on Google. Deleting your browsing data will make sure that this information is wiped clean from their servers.
Chrome also has a feature called “Cache Clear.” This feature allows you to clear all the cache files on your computer. Cache files are small files that are used by different websites to store temporary information. By clearing the cache, you can free up space on your computer and increase your speed.
So whether you’re a Mac or Windows user, clearing your browsing data and cache is always a good idea. It could save you from embarrassment or even legal trouble in the future.

It’s natural to want to know whether Google is keeping a record of the websites and search terms you’ve deleted from your history. Unfortunately, there is no way for us to definitively answer this question. While it’s possible that Google does keep a record of deleted items, there is no way for us to tell for sure. So unless you’re really concerned about what Google knows about you, I would recommend simply erasing your history whenever you decide it’s necessary.
