Did you know that Google remembers everything you have searched for since the beginning of time? Yes they do. Every time you search something on Google while signed in to your Google account, they store your search queries against your account. And Google has it neatly arranged with the date, time and even the names of every website you visited from the search results. It is stored securely in your account and the data dates back to the time you created your Google account. There is no reason to panic though, you are the only person who can see this data.
Having this history option can help you in many ways. Sometimes, you find an interesting website online, and forget to bookmark it. If you ever feel like finding the same website again, it’s not going to be an easy task unless you have a really great memory. In such situations, the Google history can be a life saver.
