I hope you all shall be benefited from the following information and shall pass this on to your friends

Daily Mail reports that deleting your browsing history before March 1 when Google’s new privacy policy comes into effect will limit Google’s ability to track and record your every move online. The process is simple. Follow the steps below:

1. Go to the Google homepage and sign into your account.

2. Click the drop-down menu next to your name in the upper-right hand corner of your screen.

3. Click accounts settings

4. Find the “Services section”

5. Under “Services” there is a sub-section that reads “View, enable, disable web history.” Click the link next to it that reads: “Go to Web History.” (Note: When you click “Go to Web History” you may be taken to a page which gives you the options “Turn Web History On”/”No Thanks”: Click “Turn Web History On” and you will finally be taken to step 6 below)

6. Click on “Remove all Web History”

When you click on “Remove all Web History,” a message appears that says ” Web History is Paused.” What this means is that while Google will continue gathering and storing information about your web history it will make all data anonymous, that is, Google will not associate your Web History information with your online accounts and will therefore be unable to send you customized search results.
Google’s ability to gather personalized information about you by assigning data to your Gmail and YouTube accounts will remain “Paused” till you click “Resume.”
