Turn off Personal results

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.

Important: When Personal results are off, you won't get personalized predictions or recommendations in Google Search 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 see & control your Web & App Activity.

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 Android phone or tablet, go to or open the Google app Google Search.
  2. In the search bar, start typing a search.
  3. Predictions will appear below the search bar. Long-press a prediction.

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