How to Password Protect your Google Search History?

Google monitors every usage of the products that it rolls out. It does, however, provide you the choice to manage your information. Since the tracking data becomes outdated, it is erased immediately. However, if you share your computer with another person, they may view this information without your knowledge. Google offers the ability to password-protect this search history in order to keep it hidden from inquisitive eyes.

Utilizing activity.google.com, you may access your Google activity. Unless you turn off tracking, this is where Google stores all of your data. All of this information—including Google searches, Google Assistant commands, Google Maps locations, and YouTube history—is readily available here.

You also have the option to password-protect your personal information if you wish to keep it private from other computer users that Google tracks. We’ll show you how to secure your Google Search History with a password in this risewindows article.

How to Password Protect your Google Search History?

Step 1: First, launch your preferred browser and log into your Google account.

Step 2: Go to the activity.google.com page.

Step 3: Click on the option Manage my activity verification. You will find it next to the paragraph that says Google safeguards your privacy and security.

Step 4: A pop-up will show up on your screen with the following options:-

  • Require extra verification
  • Do not require extra verification

Click on the Save button.

Step 5: A prompt window will now show up on your screen asking you to sign in to your Google account once more to confirm that you are who you say you are. After entering your account password, select Next.

Step 6: Now, click on the Verify button.

Step 7: You will have to enter your account details once more. After entering your Google account password, click on Next.

A password is required each time someone attempts to view their Google Search History. Although this seems like a good security measure, there is a significant weakness in the design of the system. The browser will automatically fill in your Google account password for you and anyone attempting to access your activity if you save it there.

That is it.

You guys are amazing; keep reading, learning and growing.
