How to Delete Google My Activity Log

Tom LiJuly 17, 2017

So you think you know how to cover your tracks. You know how to delete your browser history, you know how to clear the search cache, you know how to set up proxies to keep your IP hidden, and you use a VPN because you’re just that cautious. But did you know that if you were logged into Google that Google will store all your activity and that you can retrieve everything from the Google My Activity history log?

Yep. If you go to Google’s My Activity page, you can find logs of everything you’ve done while logged into a google account. Literally everything such as which websites you’ve visited, your Google Voice searches, YouTube video watch history, Google Map searches and more are all kept in a separate vault from your Chrome browser.

Luckily, Google My Activity can be easily deleted with just a few easy steps.

Delete Google My Activity Log for a Particular Product

Alternatively, if you want to delete the search history for a particular Google product such as search for example, but you still want to keep your Google Home history, here’s how you do that.

Step 1

Go to myactivity.google.com

Step 2

Type in the name of the Google service you’d like to delete (Example: Maps)

Step 3

Once search completes, hit the three dots next to the search bar

Step 4

Hit “Delete results

 

Conclusion

Voila! Now you know how to keep your history safe from prying eyes. Whether or not this is actually deleted completely at Google is a mystery, but at least you now don’t get some weird page recommendations from looking up Viagra information “for your friend”.
