Forget Google. Yes, Google will actually allow you to forget them or at least delete the sites that you have visited while surfing the Google wave. Google recently unleashed myactivity.google.com which allows Google platform users to view their search history and delete specific Google searches if they want.
Google explains My Activity this way:
- Rediscover the things you’ve searched for, visited, and watched on Google services.
- Your activity helps make your Google experience faster, smarter, and more useful.
- You can easily delete specific items or entire topics. You can also change your settings and decide what data gets associated with your account.
Industry hot shots are both excited and leery of the tool. Computerwold.com explains the possible downside of deleting Google account browsing history as follows:
- “Ads will become much more generic and annoying, as will searches and other web research.”
- “Chrome browser won’t autofill URLs of sites you often visit.”
- “Raises questions about whether your security and privacy are actually compromised by Google making all of this data available to you.”
