According to Android Police Google has implemented a password protection feature that can be used to protect your “My Activity” page where all your search history is. This feature does not only password your search history it also ensures that your app’s, location, history, and more cannot be viewed by any other person or deleted by them.

How to password protect your Google search history

If you like this feature and would want to use it all you have to do is to be logged into your Gmail account which means you must have a Gmail account. Now after you have logged in visit the My Activity page and then click on ‘Manage My Activity Verification’. Once you have done that you will now choose an option to require extra verification, this means that once anybody tries to access your history the person will have to verify if it is you or not.

So after activating this password protection feature anytime you want to visit that page you must verify using the lock icon and the button that says “Verify.” Make sure you do not forget the password you use in locking your activity page.
