Learn more about autocomplete.

Turn off Personal results

Important: When Personal results are off, you won't get personalized predictions or recommendations based on your past searches. If you have Web & App Activity on, your Search history is saved in your Google Account and used to give you more personalized experiences in other Google services. Learn how to find & control your Web & App Activity.

If you’re signed in to your Google Account and have Personal results turned on, you might also get personalized predictions and recommendations in Google Search. If you don’t want to get these predictions and recommendations, turn off Personal results.

Turn off trending searches

If you don't want to get trending searches, you can change your settings.

  1. On your computer, go to
  2. At the bottom, tap Settings and then Search settings.
  3. Under "Autocomplete with trending searches," select Do not show popular searches.

Turn off related searches

If you’re signed out from your Google Account when you search on Google, you may find recommendations related to your recent search. If you don’t want to get these, turn off Search customization.

  1. On your computer, go to
  2. At the bottom, tap Settings and then Search settings and then Search customization.
  3. Turn off Search customization.

Report a prediction

While we do our best to prevent inappropriate predictions, we don’t always get it right. If you think a prediction violates one of the autocomplete policies, you can report it:

  1. On your computer, go to
  2. In the search bar, start typing a search.
  3. Predictions will appear below the search bar. Below the prediction, click Report inappropriate predictions.
  4. Provide your feedback, then click Send.

We’ll analyze your feedback, but we don’t automatically remove reported predictions.
