Disable Tracking and Erase Your YouTube History Forever

Source: Ghacks:

Do you want to prevent YouTube from keeping a record of the videos you watch?
Do you want to erase the history of videos that you have watched until today?
If the answer to any of the above is Yes! read on ...

When you're logged into Google or YouTube, a record of all the videos you searched for and watch is logged in your account. You can clear those logs, but up until now you couldn't disable the logging altogether. Here, finally, is how to keep YouTube from recording your video searches and the videos you watch. To disable My Search History, go to this settings page on YouTube to get to the new options. The page lists all the videos that you watched on the site in the past. Note that you need to be logged in to your Google account that you normally use while accessing the YouTube videos.

There are actually two settings to change:

  • First, click on "Pause search history" which will disable the video search logging.
  • Then, in the menu on the left, click "History" and then the button at the top, "Pause viewing history" to disable the recording of the videos you view on YouTube.


If ever you want to go back to having a log of the videos you've watched or searched for on YouTube back, you can click the resume buttons.
