How to View Your Google Search History
Do you need to locate a webpage or website that you visited previously but can’t recall how to access it again? Maybe you found a URL on your phone at the time, but you can’t seem to find it on your PC now. Fortunately, Google records every website and link you’ve ever clicked.
Any webpage you’ve visited can be found using the history feature, allowing you to return to it as if you’d never lost it in cyberspace. How to use Google’s search history feature is shown below.
As long as your Gmail profile is synced across all of your devices, you can access your Google account history whenever you want on any device. Google maintains a thorough record of all website and product searches, as well as image and video views, app usage, and blog post readings.
Viewing Your Google Search History with Your Google Account
Any device with a browser, including a Windows PC, Mac, mobile phone, or tablet, can be used to access your Google account history. The procedure is simple because all you need are your username and password. What you must do is as follows:
- Open the “Google” homepage. Click on your “profile icon” located in the top right corner. You may need to log in first.
- Select “Manage your Google Account.”
- Choose the “Data & Privacy” tab.
- Scroll down and select the “Things you’ve done and places you’ve been” section.
- Click on the “My Activity” option.
- Scroll down the page to use the general search bar or the Filter by date & product option (Android, Maps, YouTube, etc.), or scroll down the list and browse by date and time.
You can get a list of all the websites, applications, and updates for all of the devices connected to your Google Account by using the various view options above. You can use the “search bar” to look up particular tasks, programs, or websites. Sorting by date, date range, and applications is one of the “filtered options.”
If you’ve ever deleted your history, everything you’ve done with your Google account is recorded on the activity page above.
Viewing Your Google Search History on Android
You cannot access the option in the settings, despite the fact that the process is similar to viewing your Chrome history on a computer or phone. This is the procedure.
- Open the “Chrome” app, then type “myactivity.google.com” without quotes into the address bar or search box.
- Scroll down the page until you get to the “Search your activity” box. From there, conduct a search, apply filters, or scroll down to view your browsing history.
Viewing Your Google Search History on an iPhone or iPad
While Google does an excellent job of streamlining its applications, iOS users’ instructions are quite dissimilar. How to retrieve your search history is as follows:
- Open the “Chrome” app and tap on the “gear icon” (Settings) next to “discover” at the bottom of the screen.
- Choose “Manage Activity.”
- At the top of the page, use the search box or apply filters. You can also scroll down the page to view all history.
In general, the Google Account history feature can be useful if you need to locate a specific page from a website you visited or can’t remember the name of a specific website you want to visit again. Google stores everything for you, allowing you to easily access any link at any time. In order to clear your locations, device updates, and other items, you can also delete your Google search history.
