How to Add Password to Google Chrome Search History – here have been countless jokes about how people want their search history deleted after they die. At least you won’t have to do this for your Google Search history. Google has added extra verification to the My Activity tab that allows you to set a password in your Google history .
In simple words, your Google search history can now be password protected. So besides setting your search history to automatically clear itself, you can leave it with a password. Of course, Google will still be able to see and use this activity.
How to Set Password to Google Chrome Search History
- Setting a password to your Google Activity (My Activity) is pretty easy. Just go to myactivity.google.com and you will see the “ Manage My Activity Verification ” button.
- Click on it and click on “ Require Extra Verification ” and click on Save . Enter your Google account password and you will be redirected to the My Activity page.
So you can now set a password for your activity. You should also turn off web and app activity and location history to maintain complete privacy . If you’re not interested in setting a password , you can set your history to be automatically deleted after a certain time.
Google is also working on a number of privacy sandbox measures. The controversial Google FLoC, Google ‘s cookie replacement , is part of the same thing. Additional features like a password in the search history make the already polished Google experience even better.
Turning off web and app activity stops Google from tracking you on the web. Location history also keeps a creepy detailed account of where you’ve been. However, a password in the search history is always a welcome thing. It will put an end to the promises of “Delete my browser history when I die”.
