With more than 70,000 Google searches performed every second, it’s a safe assumption that most people lean on Google pretty heavily for getting information. As a result, most of us have found ourselves in a situation where we searched for something and found an answer or solution only to forget it later. Thankfully, Google makes it easy to dig up and see everything from your recent Google searches to your entire Google search history. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in both the YouTube video above and the image collection located beneath the steps.
Steps to See Google Search History
- Open a web browser on your desktop or laptop computer, or mobile device, and then navigate to MyActivity.Google.com. You’ll land on your My Google Activity Screen.
- Click “Web and App Activity” in the center of the screen. You’ll land on the Activity Controls screen.
- Scroll down the menu on this screen, and then click “Manage Activity” in this menu. The Web and App Activity screen is shown. If you scroll down this screen you’ll see all of your historical Google web and app activity. But we want to filter this down to just show your Google searches, so let’s keep going.
- Click “Filter By Date and Product” beneath the Search Your Activity field. A window appears with options for filtering your data.
- Scroll through the Filter By Google Product section, click to place a check mark next to Search, and then click “Apply.” You’ll be routed back to the results screen, where you’ll just see a chronological list that shows you your Google searches and any associated sites you visited as a result of those Google searches.
