You should delete your Google search history on various web browsers from time to time.
That or to keep those surprise party or anniversary vacation plans a secret, of course.
But erasing stored Google searches is about more than keeping your past search habits private from a supervisor, spouse, or parent — and besides, there is always the option of using Incognito Mode on Chrome and Private Window on Safari to avoid a visible store of your searches.
Beyond the funny videos, the news stories, the trivia, and other content, think of how many times you have searched for an address, a phone number, information about an employer, and other data that could help a hacker steal your identity, find you in person, and other unwanted outcomes.
Yes, from time to time, you should.
And you should also control the types of searches Google saves in the first place.
