Windows 10: Google Search History Suggestions Showing Up On Multiple Devices?

    Google Search History Suggestions Showing Up On Multiple Devices?


    Why and how is this happening?? My Google search suggestion history I type in on my phone (possibly PC as well), is somehow coming up onto my mum's tablet, too! Now, I can understand if I have logged in via my Google account somewhere on my phone and also her tablet (and vice-versa), but I haven't! Or I have in the past, but always delete my browsing history from time to time, anyway!

    Take a look at your settings for Sync, and toggle off/on what you want to share with other devices.

    I logged in and turned sync off. It's still weird, though. It's ridiculous this should happen. Especially if you're googling something person. Not necessarily porn! I haven't even logged in with her account or even mine via Google on my phone computer for a while, yet it still somehow showed some search suggestions from recently!

    That's what I don't understand? How is my search history showing up on her tab, when I haven't even logged into my Google account on my phone or PC, let alone her tab! You can't even adjust the sync settings via Chrome, unless you're signed in, too!

    Take a look at these things:


    People also ask


    How do I link all my Google accounts?


    See or remove connected accounts


    • Sign in to your Google Account.
    • Go to the Connected accounts page.
    • There, you'll see a list of all the accounts and services connected to your Google Account.
    • To remove one, choose Remove.
    • Sometimes, a connected email account might also have been added as an alternate email address.

    I'm mostly a Firefox guy, so I'm kinda running out of suggestions. Sorry.

    No worries! Appreciate the help. It is a worry, though. I've seen other people via Google with the same/similar issues. Could it even been related to the IP/Internet connection? Using the same Wi-Fi, it might sync results etc.

    Doubtful. That's only a gateway to the net. Router doesn't know or care about your browser or anything.
