Some of the most valuable, and widely-distributed tracking data comes from your search term history – it's an assumptive snapshot of your interests, your brand choices, and your aspirations. Couple those records of curiosity with a history of the resulting search results you actually clicked on, and your online behavioral profile practically builds itself. Withholding your search history means either switching to a more secure search engine, like DuckDuckGo, or installing Disconnect Search, which also prevents the sharing and storing terms and results, but currently only works with Chrome and Firefox.
