Is Cleaning Your Browsing Data Enough? Think Again!

Google has a great tool to actually and really clean your browsing history, cookies, and data.
With Chrome being used a lot and also G-Suite for companies, do yourselves and your companies a favor and delete everything at least once per week.
When you click on History on Chrome,
Bottom left you see: Your Google Account may have other forms of browsing history at myactivity.google.com

Click on it and you will see another set of activities you had no idea about. So next to each day, click the garbage bin and delete. See picture below:

Keep going down and delete every day.

After you have deleted everything, you will see:
Good job!
Close this tab, go back to your history, and clean your browsing data as well:

If you get in the habit of cleaning everything, you will be safer.
We do banking, meetings, financial transactions online.
Why leave a trace for any hacker behind?
The first time I had to delete 5 years worth of data.
Took me about 45 minutes.
After that day, I clean both history and my activity every night before I switch off my computer and it takes literally 3 minutes at most.

So spread the word! Tell your teams, your employees, family members, friends!
And this applies to both PC and Apple computers, and laptops.
