Your internet history is not stored forever. The length of time that your internet history is stored can vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of device you are using, the browser you are using, and the settings on your device.
In general, the information that is stored in your internet history is stored locally on your device and is not sent to a remote server. This means that the information is stored on your device until it is deleted or until the device is no longer in use.
There are a few ways that you can control how long your internet history is stored:
- Clear your browsing history: You can use your web browser’s settings to clear your browsing history on a regular basis. This will remove the websites that you have visited from your internet history.
- Use private browsing mode: Private browsing mode, also known as incognito mode, does not save your browsing history or cookies. This means that your internet history is not stored while you are using private browsing mode.
- Use a VPN: A VPN (Virtual Private Network) encrypts your internet connection and routes your traffic through a server in a different location. When you use a VPN, your internet history is not stored on your device. Instead, it is stored on the VPN server, which you can access and delete as needed.
By taking these steps, you can control how long your internet history is stored and protect your online privacy.
