Google is the most popular search engine in the world, there are tons of reason behind this. But one thing I don’t like about Google search results is it shows private results. It can be described in this way – let’s presume accidentally you have subscribed to a Google plus page or you have circled someone on Google plus.

Permanently Off Private Search Results in Google Search

That person had posted something related to your search keyword, now it won’t matter how much quality that Google plus post has. It will be one the first page may be on the top 5, so it’s harder to get what you are looking for when you are using the private search feature.

Although there is some good use of this private search result feature, I think it’s worth disabling it than tolerating some creepy useless search results on the first page of Google. For getting rid of this problem you can click on the icon which seems like the world and Google will hide all the private search results on that page.

But if you want to get rid of private search results permanently then you have to follow the guide given below. For your assistance, I have included some screenshots which will guide you better through the process.

Permanently Hide Private Search Results from Google Search

Step 1: First you need to go to and search for anything you want. You can see on the screenshot that I have searched for most useful tricks (yes it is my blog 🙂 )

Step 2: You need to sign in to your Google account now in case you are not signed in yet. Just click on the blue sign in button (on the upper right side of the page) and sign in to your Google account.

Step 3: Now you have to click on the setting icon (See the image below) and click on search settings. You will be redirected to a Google search settings page for your account.

Step 4: Now scroll down the page until you see “Private Results” section on that page. Now simply select the “Do Not Use Private Results” option.
