How to stop Youtube from tracking your viewing history

Youtube keeps track of all the videos that you have seen in recent past (if you are signed on to your google account). Until now you had the ability to erase this cache. More recently, you now have the ability to stop youtube from tracking. Well, you theoretically ‘pause it’, but then you can pause it forever, and never unpause it. Here is how you do it – in screen shots. Thanks lifehacker for this.

Step 1: Log into your google account and go to Click on your google userid on the top right side of the screen.

Step 2: Click on Video Manager

Step 3: Click on Search History

Step 4: Click on “Clear All Search History” to clear your cache. And then click on “Pause search history” to pause track.

You are done.
