Starting tomorrow, March 1, 2012, Google will enact new privacy settings that will basically make your entire past, present and future search history public information. Yup, if your mom really wanted to, she could find out what you were searching, when and how often. Scary, right?
Now in the case of stopping stalkers and serial killers, it’s an awesome idea. But for the rest of us, it’s just annoying. I don’t want my boss knowing how often I google her.
You either? Well you can pause the sharing of your Google search history in just 5 easy steps.
1. Log into you Google/Gmail account.
2. Go to google.com/history.
3. Click Remove All Web History.
4. Click Ok.
5. Spread the Word!
Google’s privacy change goes into effect in just a few hours, so take care of your sh*t now!
