How To Download Your Entire Google Search History

Have you ever thought about what you were searching in Google a few years ago? From cute kittens to searching for a solution of your technical problems, Google stores every search query. Yes, this just sounds creepy, but that’s what Google does. Unless you have disabled your search history, every single query you’ve searched while staying logged-in to Google is stored on Google’s servers. If you’re concerned about this, then you can also disable search history.

Step 2: Click on the gear icon from the top right and then click on Download.

Step 3: Click on “Create Archive.”

Google warns users that this is “not the usual yada yada.” You should not download this archive to any public computer as it contains sensitive data. You should enable and use two-step verification for additional protection, and also if you decide to take this data elsewhere, read the data export policies of your destination.

Google will then create an archive of your data and will send an email to you once it is ready for download. The link in the email will take you to a “Takeout” folder in Google Drive. A .ZIP file will be available for download, which will contain .JSON files which will have your search history in them.

So that’s how you can download your entire search history of Google in your computer. Go ahead and try it out.
