Google actively collects information about its users. The YouTube service is no exception.

You can disable your browsing history if you are concerned about your privacy.

1. Install file explorer that can work with root.
2. Go to the app settings.
3. Activate the "Show root partition" / "Show root storage" function.
4. Open the "Root" section.
5. Go to the "/system/etc " path.
6. Open the "hosts" file using a text editor.
7. Enter the following:
127.0.0.1 s.youtube.com
8. Save the file and restart the device.

Done. Now videos that you watch in the YouTube app will not be saved in your browsing history.

If you watch the video in the browser, the history will be saved.
