Can Deleting Search History Hide It From Others?

No, if you delete your search history, then no one can see what you previously searched for. Google still stores records about the way you used its web browser related to the deleted data; however, it does not store any inforation about what you specifically searched for. For example, Google may remember that you searched for something at a certain time and date; but it will not remember what that something was.

Does Clearing Browsing History Permanently Erase Data?

No, deleting your browsing history does not really delete anything. Even if you clear your browser's cache and delete all of your history, there is still a record of every Google search you have ever made that remains. This data isn't stored in the browser itself; it is stored on Google's servers. Every time you make a search query, it is recorded and associatd with your account. This data can be accessed at any time by logging into your Google account and viewing the activity log for the past few months (or years). Even if you delete individual search entries from the log, the data remains in Google's system and can still be accessed. So while deleting your browsing history may give you some peace of mind, it does not actually delete anything.
