iPad google.com search history

Sun Oct 01, 2017 9:45 pm

looks like iPads can't turn off google.com search history without logging in? I tried on android devices and iphones and the do not save search history option exists, but for iPads it is conspicuously missing. Anyone else experience the same thing?

Indeed.....at least on iOS 11. While interesting, I have to admit that I can’t remember even bothering to look at that setting for devices which aren’t logged in (at least in recent memory) because the info should theoretically get wiped when you delete the local cookie.

That’s not to say there aren’t reasons you wouldn’t want it saved (other users on the same device, etc). I offer no useful information.
