Ever get that feeling like you're being watched? Living in our current age of technology is wonderful for convenience and communication, but it can come with that uneasy feeling of someone maybe just having a little too much information on you. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to take your destiny into your own hands.
(Don't do this if you are on a public computer-- this is just for your home computer.)
First, head to Google's web and activity page.
Click the settings button on the top right side. It's the menu that looks like a gear.
Select "download" from the drop down menu.
Now scroll down to the bottom of the page and select "create an archive." Since it's your own personal computer, click "OK" when it gives you the data warning.
Now go back to the web and activity page. Click the gear icon and select "Remove items."
Choose how long you'd like to remove your history.
And say goodbye to your online past! Remember that this won't affect photos, Facebook status updates or blog posts that you've created. This just deletes the record of your search terms.
