How to Clear Google Search History

Google is the largest player in search engines’ competition, being surfed most times than any other web site. Every day, millions of people use Google for searching something, let it be any music, movies, wallpapers of any other adult content!

This eases Google’s efforts to provide personalized services to the users. Every time a user opens Google, it checks whether the user has signed in or not; if the user has not signed in, Google let user search things without any further personalized help but if the user has signed in, Google provide list of previously written searches or names of the web sites once user start typing, making it easier for user to surf the net.
