We all have moments in our lives we’d rather keep private. Whether it’s an embarrassing search query, or something you don’t want anyone else to know you were looking for, there are ways to keep your searches secret. You can delete all or part of your search history from Google’s My Activity page. Here’s how.
First, go to myactivity.google.com and log in with the Google account you want to delete searches for. On the main My Activity page, you’ll see a timeline of your activity grouped by day. You can click on any day to expand it and see more details.
To delete all searches from your history, click on the Menu icon on the top right corner of the page and select Delete activity by.
A new window will pop up, giving you the option to select how far back in time you want to delete your searches. You can choose to delete all history, or only history from specific time periods: last hour, today, last 7 days, last 28 days, or All time. You can also select specific products whose history you want to delete: for example, only searches made using Chrome, or only activity on YouTube.
Once you’ve selected everything you want to delete, click Delete at the bottom of the window and your history will be wiped clean!
