By turning off Google tracking you can ensure that others will not be able to see what you have searched for on Google if they access your computer while you are logged in to Google. For those who are concerned about the privacy of their internet usage, this is a great option to keep your searches confidential.

While this does not guarantee that Google will not continue to track what you are doing online, it helps you sheath your searches at least from the public. Another way of ensuring anonymity with your searches is by going incognito on Google Chrome. Using the incognito window allows you to search Google without leaving your footprints about what you have searched.

It can be used to access websites and also use the search engine without the browser recording your activities. This is helpful for those who do not like to be tracked.

The next time you see Google prompting your recent searches, you do not have to fuss over privacy concerns. All you need to do is simply follow the steps to pause your search and browsing activity and use Google without the search engine telling you what your search habits are.
