Google Is Allowing Users To Protect Their Search History

Share post:

Google has added a way for users to password-protect the Web and Activity page.

The Web and Activity page shows the user activity of all Google services such as search history, YouTube watch history, and Google Assistant history.

Without verification, anyone who has access to the account can view this data.

To enable verification, users can go to activity.google.com and click on the “Manage My Activity” verification link.

From there, users can password-protect their website and activity page by selecting the “Require Extra Verification” link and clicking “Save.”
