I am going to teach you on how we could disable this seemingly harmless setting so that Google cannot track our web use. If we allow its default setting (enabled), our personal security could be at great risk.
Here’s the step-by-step procedure:
1. Log-in to your Google account. For this, I suggest that you always use a secured connection by using the prefix HTTPS instead of the usual HTTP.
2. Once successfully logged in, click this link:
3. At the lowest part of your Account Settings, look for something like that of the screenshot below. So under “Services”, click on “Go to Web History“. If you see another logon screen, simply log-in again.
Did you notice the following? Did it somehow ring a data privacy bell?
After logging in (the second time around), make sure that you “pause” web history tracking and also click on “Remove all web history“. By doing these, you ensure a greater enhancement of your own privacy.
