Not only will they know more about you they will be storing your web history.  For me, I have no secrets other than perhaps what the children's Christmas presents may be but for those of you that do visit sites perhaps you would rather your partner did not know about now is the time to take action.  After Thursday 1st March you will not be able to stop Google storing your history.  The time to act is now.  

It takes just three simple steps: 

  1. Go to the Google homepage & sign into your account.  Use the drop down menu under your name in the upper right-hand corner to access your settings.  Click on 'account settings'
  2. Find the section called 'Services' and you'll see a link to 'View, enable, or disable web history' Click on it.
  3. You can remove all of your search details by clicking on 'Remove Web History' this will remain disabled until you turn it back on – if you so choose too.
