What your history page shows

Your History page shows the webpages you've visited on Chrome in the last 90 days. It doesn’t store Chrome pages you’ve visited like chrome://settings, pages you've visited in Incognito mode, or pages you've already deleted from your browsing history.

If you're signed in to Chrome and syncing your history, then your History page shows webpages you’ve visited across all your synced devices for much longer.

Browse privately

If you don’t want Chrome to save your browsing history at all, you can browse in private with Incognito mode.

Using a Chromebook at work or school? Your network administrator can turn off browsing history. If history is off, your History page won't list webpages you've visited. Learn about using a managed Chrome device
