Fancy seeing every Google search you have EVER made? Here's how to - if you dare!

By 

There's few things more embarrassing in the days of social media than those dreaded 'flashback' reminders.

You may wake up each morning and check Facebook, and be dismayed to see a photo from five years ago at the top of your homepage, all because it was taken on the same date.

Most of us, naturally, don't want to be reminded of our past - but a new tool from Google is bound to make you curious.

The search engine giant is now giving you the chance to see every Google search you have ever made.

So, if you do fancy delving back through the embarrassing backlog of searches, you're in luck.

Google users can take a glance at some of the more bizarre things they had on their mind, before turning to Google for help.

Whether you've asked 'why is the sky blue?' or searched your ex-partner's name - all your searches will be there.

By clicking on history.google.com/history users can search for anything they searched for on a specific date while logged into to a Gmail or Google account.

The site's functions also lets you search for specific words as part of your history.

 

You can also see what Google images have previously been viewed on your account, or what areas on Google Maps you have explored

Thankfully, you are the only user able to see the information - so don't panic too much.

You can also opt out of being tracked by clicking on the 'Activity Controls' option and moving the 'web and app activity' slider to off.
