Stop Google From Tracking Your Web Activity

"March 1 is the day Google's new unified privacy policy goes into effect, which means your Google Web History will be shared among all of the Google products you use.
   Do you know if Google is tracking your Web activity? If you have a Google account (for, say, Gmail) and have not specifically located and paused the Web History setting, then the search giant is keeping track of your searches and the sites you visited. This data has been separated from other Google products, but on March 1 it will be shared across all of the Google products you use when Google's new privacy policy goes into effect.
   If you'd like to prevent Google from combining this potentially sensitive data with the information it has collected from your YouTube, Google+, and other Google accounts, you can remove your Web History and stop it from being recorded moving forward."
From Lew Lewandowski
I just checked my account and found that they had a record of every search I'd done.No thanks! I removed it all.

I assume anything I do that is connected to technology is searchable, and public.

That being said, I still removed my history. ;)

Is it only if you have a Google account and are signed in to the account that Google is able to track your movements?

If you just use Google for searches and YouTube to watch a video without signing in to an account, then Google can't track you---is that right?
