Google’s new privacy policy will consolidate all your data at google.com — unless you erase it first. And Feb. 29 is your last day to do it. Follow the instructions from the Electronic Frontier Foundation on how to delete your web history at Google:

  1. Sign into your Google account.
  2. Go to https://www.google.com/history
  3. Click “remove all Web History.”
  4. Click “ok.”

Note that removing your Web History also pauses it. Web History will remain off until you enable it again.

If you have several Google accounts, you will need to do this for each of them.
