    Is there anyway to disable google.com from saving your search history ? Thanks. It is just annoying if not no big deal.

    Or should I stop using google lol ?

    You can pause your search history in your personal Google Settings.

    You do need a Google ID or GMail address to access your personal settings. If you do not have those, then you probably do not have a joined-up history as such, if you clear the local history.

    So are you saying there is no way to disable this unless I have a Google ID or GMail address ?

    As I said, if you do not have a Google ID, you probably haven’t got a full history of searches - just the temporary history which is easy to clear. Even a Google ID holder with history paused has to clear local searches.

    You can’t stop Google temporary history. Most search engines will save your history. You could, of course, use Safari in Privacy Mode, which suspends history.
