Can anyone see what you search on Google on your Phone?

If you are new to the digital world, you may need help understanding certain things. For example, you may have just purchased a new Android phone and used the Google App to search for something.

After performing a search, you may have questioned yourself, ‘Can someone see what I search on Google?’ This question can haunt you, especially if you don’t have enough knowledge of how Google or any other search engine works.

Can someone see what I searched on Google on my phone?

That ‘Someone’ on the question can be very subjective; it can be Google, your friends, your ISP, your family members, or any random person who has access to your smartphone.

Google saves your search queries as part of your Web and app activity. Everyone who has access to your phone can see what you’ve previously searched for.

Can other users on the Internet See What I Search on Google?

By other users, you mean people on the internet with a Google Account. No! Other users with a Google account can’t see your Google Search history.

Google doesn’t publicly display the queries you’ve performed on its search.

Can your Internet Service Provider see what you search on Google?

In short, the answer is YES! because everything you do online passes through your ISP’s servers initially.

Your internet service provider can see your exact searches, the websites you visit, and the amount of time you spend on them.
