I get:

Your Web History includes searches you've done on Google and pages
you've clicked in search results. Web History allows you to:
    See personalized search predictions as you type.
    Get results and recommendations that are tailored to your preferences.
    Search the full content of pages you've already seen.
You can view and edit your Web History from any computer by signing in
to your Google Account. Learn more.

Does this mean that my Web History is already off?
Do I need to turn it on temporarily to erase whatever history may be
there, then turn it off again??
