Google's new privacy policy means that your YouTube history can be stored and used by all other Google products. If you'd rather keep your YouTube search and viewing history private, you can do so from YouTube's settings.

Go to your YouTube, account, then:

1. Click on the arrow next to your profile icon.

2. Go to the "Video Manager" section of your account.

3. Click on the History tab in the sidebar. Then, click "Clear All Viewing History".

4. Once you've cleared your history, click "Pause Viewing History" to stop YouTube from recording your future activity. You may need to click on the History tab for the "Pause Viewing History" button to show back up.

5. Head to the "Search History" tab in the sidebar and repeat this process, clearing and then pausing your search history. This will stop YouTube from recording your searches.
