YouTube is a great entertainment app. It allows you to watch and share the latest movie trailers, HD, Full HD, 2K, and 4K video songs. Apart from movies and audio, YouTube has a massive collection of videos that you cannot watch with your parents or siblings.
If you are watching these videos, you may want to clear YouTube app history on your Android mobile phone or the iPhone. If you don’t do so, your friends, parents or other relatives with whom you share your mobile phone may start having a bad impression about you.
One more good reason to clear YouTube history regularly is the recent changes to Google privacy policies. No matter what app or service you use, all Google Products now have access to your data. Google shares your data with its other services so as to provide a better experience to you. You can see what information Google collects about you in the Google Accounts section.
YouTube is one of the most downloaded apps to date. Over 500 million people access YouTube every day on desktops, phones, tablets, etc. Despite using it daily, many users forget to clear the app’s search history before closing it. To restrict what data Google collects about you, you should follow the steps I’ve mentioned below.
