    hello,
    I am currently using mothers phone due to mine being dead,
    I just realized the chrome browser on it is signed into her email account.
    ive used this phone for viewing shall we say 'explicit content', then i found out about this horrible feature from google where it syncs all browsing info including current tab, history etc to other devices/the account used. I promptly signed out and disabled sync but the browsing has already been done. My question is since i deleted the history is it gone? In the settings it says the phone im using (her phone ) is the only device, after deleting the history on the device from chrome will it still be there or on her google accoun and thus accessable from other devices? Or anyway at all?
    Tldr ;deleted history on syncd phone its gone on phone, is it gone from account, is it visible?
    I gratefully thank any who help!! thankyou!
    :)

    All information browsing information when sync is enabled, is also logged onto the account. So yes, it is still visible.

    Hey, thanks for the valuable info.
    can you tell me what i would do to remove these logs?
    many thanks
    edit: i am logged into the account on the phone im using though (automaticalĺy i think) so perhaps they were deleted, if not i would think there must be a way?

    All history information for Google accounts are stored in google.com/history. If nothing is there, then yes, those data has been dissociated with the account.
