same googlesearch results on 2 different PCs

  • Hello community,

    I've noticed today that Opera on my laptop displays the same purple results on Google as my main PC.
    For example: I searched for "Twitch" and "Twitch smileylist" on my PC and as soon as I type in "Tw" in Google on my Laptop Google suggests exactly the words and phrases I looked up on my other PC. How is this possible? Is it a sync option from Opera and if so, how can I turn it off? Of course both computers are in the same network and use the same internetconnection.

  • Do you have a google account ?, are you logged into this account ?.

    Anyway, whether you do or not, my take is that is probably more to do with google and their tracking habits than anything to do with Opera. The fact that both machines are on the same network, And more than likely have the same external IP address, almost reaffirms my suspicions that it may well be down to google and their dubious tracking tactics.

  • I think it is an issue with Opera because as soon as I use IE it doesn't display these results. No matter if I'm logged in or not. (btw: I wasn't logged into Google+ on my laptop)

  • Do you have Sync enabled? In 22, sync does include history ...
