Google search question.
Hi all. Real quick here. I've got this friend, who's husband has the Droid. Well she went to use the google search in the native browser on his phone. She had to look something up pertaining to a medical issue for her 2 year old son. And as she was typing in the google search engine...I guess the history of his last 3 searches came up. 1st one was "big boobs"...2nd was something having to do with cars...and 3rd was "how to stop being addicted to pills". She told me that he's had problems with the 1st (porn to be exact) and 3rd. And he works on cars, so the 2nd makes sense also. Anyways, she confronted him about all of this. And he's telling her that kind of stuff is always sent to his phone, kinda like spam etc. And also I guess he has a friend who is a vzw rep, and he also says the same thing. But the chances of those 3 searches popping up in the search history just randomly and for no reason, when he has direct relations to them, are pretty slim in my opinion. Anyways, I just want to help my friend out and get to the bottom of this. So my question is this: Does Google send random spam to your phone, just out of the blue? Cuz that seems to be the husbands excuse. And she's not buying it (nor am I) Any help on this matter will be appreciated, thank you in advance.
Yikes. Sounds like quite the interesting situation all around. Is he saying he gets spam e-mail and that is somehow affecting his Google search history? Even if he was clicking the links within these emails, it wouldn't show up in his Google site search history. Also, Google doesn't "send" stuff to your phone via the web somehow (at least not in the way it sounds like he's claiming). When you begin to type a search in to Google on the stock browser, it will give you "history" search terms that are things the user has actually searched for in the past and have similar characteristics to what you're currently typing in, and it will also give you "suggested" search terms.
He is so busted, pun intended. :eek: ;)
So, just out of curiosity, how do you go about clearing this search history?
nvm. found it....
