Google knows everything about us, what functions we have done from our browser and applications, where we have been, what we have consulted, what we have read, how long we have been in each site, what time, when we connect and disconnect.. The system allows us to know, for example, from the pages we have searched in the browser to the videos we have reproduced on YouTube, in what can be a useful tool as well as something quite complex at the level of investigation of what we do in the network.

My Activity orders all the data according to the time of its execution, although we can apply filters to be able to make a review during certain periods in the past, or to inquire about if we use some particular service, be the search engine, Android, etc. These saved data help make your services much more useful, receiving, for example, more public transport options in Maps or faster results in the search engine.

This stored information can now be reviewed from top to bottom, and also be edited, making it possible to erase everything that you do not want to appear in your activity, for whatever reason. Click on the left side of your screen to select this option. You can see here your searches and visited pages in bundles.

You can browse privately without the device saving the websites you visit; this is possible by browsing with incognito mode. One of the easiest ways to prevent Google or any search engine from saving your activity is to use Chrome Incognito Mode on your Android and other devices.

It is a private browsing mode that does not track everything you do. Your ISP and websites you visit are traceable, but all data is wiped out when you exit the mode. Google collects information about your browsing habits and searches also in your phone. It allows to deliver personalized search suggestions, helping you to work faster.

You can disable or erase that, but Search app as well as Chrome Browser enable the features by default. In Android, every time you tap the search bar, there will be a list of your previous searches as a drop-down list. If you want to repeat the same as you did this morning, for example, all you need to do is tap the right queries in the list.

Some users actually want to keep those searches private, and luckily you have many options to do that. Removing previous queries from the search bar is easy; it does not actually erase your browsing data, but this is enough for some users.

Here is how to do it:. Make sure your Google Search app is up to date to use this feature. You can Delete all by clicking in Clear All option see image below. If you don't see this option then try the next option.

Bing is the new name that brings together all the attempts to create a search engine for the Microsoft company: Windows Live, Msn, etc It was born in , in an attempt to give a new global option for Internet searches.

Microsoft used its most cutting-edge technology to shape this new search engine, which is slowly gaining strength on the Web, strategically allying with other Web companies that offer services, such as Twitter.

The interface of Bing is simple and intuitive, but it makes the difference with respect to other like Google for its graphic characteristics: Its background, changing day after day; the search bar, located further to the left; or its menu of search options, just above the bar.

It is also important to note that it integrates perfectly with Windows Live personal accounts, being able to log in from the search engine and interact with the results of our searches.

On advanced search methods and added services we will discuss in future articles. To do a basic search it will be enough to write in the bar the text that we want to find out, and click on the button that has a magnifying glass drawn.
