Synching iPhone to dell laptop? Please help

By CincyCarl ·
So I have a work computer and a personal phone. I have a dell work computer and an iPhone. I’ve used my laptop to charge my iPhone and when doing so, I’ve allowed access when the prompt asks “Trust this computer?” (I clicked yes)

My ask is did this synching share my web browsing history from my iPhone? I don’t see it on my laptop’s internet history.

I don’t see any of my phones images or contacts in my laptop but my anxiety riddled self would like answers. I was logged into a google account on my laptop but not on my iPhone.

My phone was on my home wifi and my laptop was on my home wifi while running a VPN.

When I go to my phones settings and click devices, I see that my work laptop is one of the devices. My safari is not backed up by iCloud.

Is there any way I can double check or am I okay? I worry because I would check websites (like Amazon) to look at items and then those items would show up on my Facebook feed.

No, browser data is never shared between different browsers (say, Safari on you iPhone and Chrome on your PC).
I think it wouldn't even be shared with Safari on your PC, but that's probably irrelevant.

What about text messages? All I did was trust this computer. Never signed into iCloud on the laptop. Will my IT department see any of my personal info?
