Watch Out YouTube Porn Addicts: Service still records what you watch, when you clear viewing history,and pause it!

(SACNS)

Today I was a little bit intrigued. For the first time since I deleted my watch history, and search history, and Google web Search History, in every form (I don't like people to spy on me), Google had recommended a video, based on something I had watched on YouTube. Granted, 6 months ago.

There can be only two explanations for it: 1) Google Chrome is giving up my entire viewing history for Google use, or in general. 2) YouTube gave me a false sense of security.

Granted, the video was of a Google advert I had watched on July 16th, according to my browser history.

What if it were an advertisement for something sensitive, something prone to blackmail, or for an item of clothing a wife might want etcetera. Below, are my windows key + s screen clippings of what Google has done! Click to expand!

Another option is that Dear Sophie is being used, where no videos are in history. Consistent checks show all recommendations on my account use Dear Sophie, even after I deleted it from my browser history. You'd have to check your own account to feel safe. It could be Google using a default and giving a fright, or they may have shifted to only dear Sophie after an error.
