    Last chance to delete your browsing history before new google privacy policy goes into effect.
    Log into your Google account (s) and go to www.google.com/history
    You can do it from a browser on your Android tablet. This also pauses further recording of your browsing history unless you restart it.
    Just FYI

    Hi Tom,

    if you want to delete local history on Android, you should use some history eraser like Android Delete History, the best one ;)

    Try it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.carlandjefferson.AndroidDeleteHistory

    Sweet :cool:

    That's good advice, but what the original post was about was deleting your browsing history from Googles databases. They were about to start sharing your history among all Google services and you had an opportunity to delete your entire browsing history permanently before that happened. You supposedly also have the ability to stop Google from tracking your browsing but I have my doubts about googles integrity at times. They will undoubtedly still track it, although they might do it anonymously, our maybe I'm just too cynical.

    If you are using an Android tablet that has google services installed you are probably being tracked a lot more closely than you might think.

    I downloaded the Android Delete History and ran it. The program erased most of the history, but not all of it. Now, how to close an open window or whatever Android calls it. No 'close' button, icon, etc.

    Thanks,

    Laurel

    Android memory management handles things pretty well, but you can close specific apps or stop running services either using the applications tab in settings or with a task manager.
