Go to myactivity.google.com

Go to myactivity.google.com. This will open your Google search history if you’re logged into your Google account. If you aren’t logged into a Google account, click SIGN IN in the top-right corner of the page, then enter your email address and password before proceeding.

On the left hand side, click “Other Google activity.”

If you’re signed in to your Google Account, and depending on your Activity controls, you may also see some of the things you do off of Google—like searches you do on other websites, or videos you watch on YouTube. To stop saving this type of activity, turn off Web & App Activity.

To the right of “Web & App Activity,” clickturn OFF .

Assuming you’re signed into your account, open the Google homepage in your browser. On the right hand side, click “Search.”

At the top of the page that comes up, there will be a search bar with the word “Google” in it. To the right of that, there are three vertical dots. Click them, and a drop-down menu will appear.

At the bottom of that drop-down menu, click “History.” This will take you to your history page, where you can view all of the searches you’ve conducted on Google while signed into this account.

On the top right of the page, click the three dots.

From here, select “History.”

You can now view your entire history, which is organized chronologically by date. To the right of each entry is a three-dot icon; click it and select “Remove from history” to delete that item from your history. Or, to delete your entire history all at once, click the Clear all history link at the top of the page.

Click “Delete options.”

Click on the three dots next to your profile picture. A drop-down menu will appear.
Click “History.” You may need to click “See more” to see this option.
Click “History” once more. This will take you to your history page, where you can view all of the searches you have made on Facebook.
Click on the three dots next to the search you want to delete. A drop-down menu will appear with two options: “Edit search” and “Delete search.”
Click “Delete search.” A pop-up window will appear asking if you’re sure you want to delete your search history.
Click “Confirm.” This will delete your selected search from your history page.

Click “All time.”

At the top right of the page, click More .
Click History History.
On the left, click Clear browsing data.
A box will open. At the top, choose a time range. To delete everything, select All time.
Next to “Cookies and other site data” and “Cached images and files,” check the boxes.
Click Clear data.

Click “Delete.”

Assuming you’re signed into your Google account (most people are), head to myactivity.google.com. You’ll see a list of all the things you’ve searched for, as well as the websites you’ve visited while logged into Chrome. From here, you can click the three-dot menu next to any item and select “Delete.” Doing this will remove that single search item from your history; it won’t delete everything.

If you want to erase your entire search history, click the “Delete activity by” option at the top of the page and select how far back you want to go — whether that’s all time, the past hour, the past day, or the past week. Then, click “Delete.”
