View & delete your Chrome browsing history

You can view your browsing history in Chrome. On a desktop or laptop computer, you can use the Journeys view of history to continue browsing that you’ve already started and find related searches.

If you don’t want a record of pages you visited in Chrome, you can delete all or some of your browsing history. If you delete your browsing history, it takes effect on all devices where you turned sync on and signed in to Chrome. You can also disable the Journeys view of history if you’d like.

Separately, you can also delete your Google search history from your account.

What your History shows

Your History shows the pages 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 private browsing, or pages you've already deleted from your browsing history.

If you're signed in to Chrome and sync your history, then your History shows pages you’ve visited across all your synced devices for much longer. If you're signed out of Chrome, your History won't show pages across your other devices.

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 won't list pages you've visited. Learn about using a managed Chrome device.
