I am having a very difficult time finding an answer to this question and am wondering if it is even possible.
I have an Android phone and am rather fond of the Google Now voice assistant. Recently, it appears that the assistant requires that the Web and App activity be turned on. I am perfectly OK with Google tracking and saving my web activity, but I do not want Google to show the history when I simply click the search bar, like this:
Not only does it look cluttered but sometimes my colleagues use my computer and I would rather not have searches that I do at home show up on my work computer. I don't need 10 links of 'photos of [random actress]' showing up any time someone clicks in the search bar.
I am well aware that this option can be disabled by disabling Web Activity, however this also disables the Google Now voice assistant which I would like to keep on.
Does any one know how to leave Search history on, but prevent the web browser from showing the searches?
