How to Remove Google and YouTube History Before March 1

New privacy policies for Google and YouTube take place on March 1, 2012:

“On March 1st, Google will implement its new, unified privacy policy, which will affect data Google has collected on you prior to March 1st as well as data it collects on you in the future. Until now, your Google Web History (your Google searches and sites visited) was cordoned off from Google’s other products. This protection was especially important because search data can reveal particularly sensitive information about you, including facts about your location, interests, age, sexual orientation, religion, health concerns, and more. If you want to keep Google from combining your Web History with the data they have gathered about you in their other products, such as YouTube or Google Plus, you may want to remove all items from your Web History and stop your Web History from being recorded in the future.”

Since Google now owns YouTube, the new Google Privacy (Not!) Policy also allows them to track and exploit your YouTube viewing and search history. Please click here for help removing that pesky Big Brother.

As someone whom Google/YouTube decided to unjustifiably censor by completing shutting down my YouTube account without notice or any actual copyright infringement at all, I would just like to say, “Empower yourselves.” Incidentally, that was the message of all my videos, which told my own story of recovery from brain injury and shared how to “Maximize Your Brain Function” — tips from my own life and/or from my professional experience as a Medical Intuitive and Life Coach. My other video series, called “Synchronicity, Intuition and Intention” likewise shared tips on how to empower yourself by tuning more into Source and flow. The only other video I had posted showed and described my first painted portal door and suggested that learning about Runes could awaken subconscious healing and power.

Google/YouTube decided my own story and experience somehow infringed “repeatedly” on someone else’s copyright. The fact that helping people to tap into their own intuition, the power of raw foods, signs and symbols is considered a threat tells you something about Google and YouTube. I actually took it as a high compliment that they refused to reinstate my account despite their lack of evidence.

Anyway, I find them, shall we say, distasteful … and I take a wee bit of pleasure sharing how to bypass some of their ridiculous new methods of control. In addition to visualizing freedom, I rather enjoy dancing on the soon to be old fashioned relics of censorship and corporate pigs. “To market, to market … jiggety-jig.”

  1. Thank you for posting this information, Laura. I still can’t believe your YouTube account was shut down – so ridiculous and infuriating (for starters).

    When I first started going online in the late ’90’s, I always used a search engine called dogpile, which i see is still extant. I would go to the page and do my searching there. But after Google took over the little perma-search bar at the top of my browser, I got lazy. It was just so darn easy to just go up in the corner to search, rather than have to click ALL the way over to dogpile (LOL), and i got in the habit of “googling”. Now I’m thinking it might be time to go back to dogpile…and am wondering if that might be safer or cleaner. At any rate, Google is not the only search engine in the world wide web! (Although they might want us to think they are.) Thoughts?

      I used to use dogpile, too, and generally used Yahoo over Google, but I noticed that Google recently co-opted my screen without my setting it. I have a Yahoo page as my home page and somehow Google’s still the default search. This only happened recently. Anyway, yes, I’ll be opting out. 🙂

    David also just found this info on Twitter:

    “Twitter has turned a social network that was meant to promote real-time global conversation into a vast market-research enterprise with unwilling, unpaid participants.”

    “The fact that two years’ worth of tweets can now be mined for information and the resulting ‘insights’ sold to businesses is a radical shift in the wrong direction.”



  3. Laura,

    Is this only if you have created a google account with user name/pswd? Or for any searches you do on google.

      I am not sure of the details. I know for sure if you have a google or YouTube account. I’m not sure of the other implications. I suspect it happens more than not, like how FB tracks your every move unless you actively sign out. Privacy is an illusion, but I wanted to share how to stop or at least hinder some of the corporate tricks.

    Interesting …. a gmail subscriber just told me that today’s blog post did not show up in his inbox. Coincidence? Delayed timing? Or Big Brother … I’m not sure, but if you use gmail to subscribe to this blog, you might want to check occasionally to see if my posts are still getting through to you. Please let me know! Thanks. 🙂
