Eva Galperin, an international activist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, wrote a step-by-step guide on "How to Remove Your Google Search History Before Google's New Privacy Policy Takes Effect." Her instructions are simple enough for anyone to follow. But understanding exactly what is happening when you delete your Google search history takes a little more explanation.

I spoke with Galperin by phone to better understand what it really means.
