New search engine remembers EVERYTHING on your computer

I often say that Google knows everything. If you have a question, 99 times out of 100 Google has the answer. But the world's most popular search engine also records your search history, knows your location, and remembers your interests. Your searches can even be a form a self-incrimination.

It sounds a little creepy but if you take advantage of it then it becomes really helpful. Sometimes you stumble across great content on the web but you have no idea where you saw it. A new product on the market can recall all of this information and then some.

Atlas Recall is software that keeps track of everything you do on your computer. CEO Jordan Ritter calls it "a photographic memory for your digital life." We use Google to search the web. A program like FileSeek can search your computer. Atlas Recall does both at the same time.

Once it's installed, Atlas Recall can search through emails, music libraries, video streaming services, computer files, search engine results - anything and everything on your computer. You can search by keyword, dates and type of content. It will show you results based on relevancy.

If you're concerned about privacy (and rightfully so) the software has precautions built into it. You can block Atlas from searching through certain apps or files. It stores the information you collect on company servers but this data is encrypted.

The software runs in the background and you can install it on multiple devices so that you can access the memory from anywhere. Right now it's available for Mac computers. You can sign up to be notified when it's ready for Windows 10. The beta version is free but in the future, there will a charge for premium features.

If you're not at all interested in search platforms that track you then check out these less invasive alternatives. Also, look at these instructions for clearing your Google search history.
