    How To: Keep Your Google History Private

    Google's new privacy policy goes into effect on March 1st (that's only 2 days away!) Unless you've gone into your settings and paused "Web History," all of your searches and sites you've visited will be shared across all Google products, such as Google + and YouTube. You can prevent this from happening by removing your Web History and stop it from being recorded moving forward. And its really simple!

    Sign into your Google account (for Gmail, G+, etc) and go to Account Settings. From there, scroll down to Services and click on the "Go to web history" link n(see attachment.) When you see the list of recent searches and sites visited, click "Remove all Web History" at the top of the page, then click "OK." Once you pause your Web History, you can always undo it by going back into settings and clicking "Resume." You can also go to https://www.google.com/history to remove your web history or watch this instructional video: http://yhoo.it/yLN4RO

    I'm not extremely bothered by the new privacy policy, to be honest. AdChoices also plays a huge part of my browsing, and it's helped in more than just a few situations. I have a very refined browsing history that can be summed up as music and sports. I'm sure others will disagree and want to keep their Internet use more private.
