Can the admin of my school account still see what I have browsed even though my web activity was paused during the time of my searching? (When web activity is paused it shouldnt be recording anything) It says there is no activity to see, however I am concerned the school admin has some type of 'supieror' account that lets them see whatever I have browsed even though web activity was not enabled.
Note: I was not on the schools network. Neither using a school device.

Why didn't you just logout of your account? :lol: If it says "paused" then in theory the admin should not be able to see it.

Just tagging AngryJellyfish to get this moved to the Tech forum.

Ah fair enough. Usually the school admins/technicians won't even check school e-mail account history.

Administrators on one website, such as your G Suite administrator cannot see your browsing history. If they could it would be a serious security issue Internet-wide.

If you are on your school's wifi network they can see what you're browsing because all the requests go through their server.

However the ablility is there. I just want to make sure if they do end up checking, there is no evidence or traces. I'm sorry, I only become at ease once im fully sure there is no chance of me getting caught.

If somehow the admin does have access to my account, what can I do to make sure there is no traces of evidence?

Do you mean, if the school administrator has access to your Google account, what can you do to make sure there is no evidence of your search history?

If that's what you meant, there will be no evidence of your search history because your school cannot log your search history unless you were using a school computer.

It says my school google account history is paused, does that mean there is no trace of evidence because I have been watching some rood tik toks on google
"Is there no trace of evidence"
There's evidence everywhere, does anyone care? No.
