Deleting Your Google Toolbar History

The Google toolbar saves all of your personal searches so that when you type a search query, it can guess what you are typing and offer suggestions in real-time. Unfortunately, this has caused many privacy concerns for users. Not only does it permit Google to collect personal private data for those using the Google toolbar, but the history is made easily available to anyone with access to that computer. Fortunately for those with privacy concerns, Goolge toolbar search history can be deleted and this feature can be turned off.

(Note: to remove search history that you see when you search on the Google web site, please see Delete Google Search History)

How to Delete Google Toolbar History

To manually delete your search history on the Google toolbar, simply click on the dropdown arrow on the right side of the search box and then click Clear History.
