Their has been many controversies surrounding online privacy in the recent years. With a lot of them focusing around applications and companies saving peoples personal data, However I've recently discovered that without us knowing our Android devices have been saving our internet history, and even when we delete it, it doesn't get deleted from their online storage. The strange thing about this is that many people were never blatantly informed and a lot still don't know about it. So in This article I'm going to tell you how to delete you search history from Google's online storage.

You search history is saved to Google's online storage through you're android devices, they use this information to better advertise products to you. While that may be harmless, it could possibly be used for nefarious reasons, so I'm going to tell you how to delete it. Let's start by opening up the chrome application in you're device, then use Google to search the words "My Activity". 

Open the first link and you will now find a list of you're internet history, even things that you have deleted from you're phone. You can now begin to start deleting it all or just small things you don't want others to see. You're personal information is important so do not let them have it. Tell me what you think in the comments and follow for more news as it happens.
