Delete your search history on Facebook

delete facebook search history

Did you know ? Facebook keeps all of your social network search history. This optimizes your future searches, and only you have access to it (well almost).

Very practical at first glance. Unless you have given your password to your spouse.

Normally, we all have one day made a search to find old friends, work colleagues, but also why not this young girl or this young man crossed (e) at a party. On the other hand, what is dangerous is when we perform a search, Facebook automatically records all our requests. In this case, any person connecting to our profile can have access to our history.

If you're fed up with Facebook remembering everything you do and want to keep it low-key, here's a really easy way to clear your Facebook search history.

Delete your search history on Facebook

1) First go to your Facebook profile.

2) Open your Personal History.

3) On the left column, under Like Mentions and Comments, click on "More" then on "Searches".

This takes you to your search history. An (almost) endless list of your searches since you created an account. To delete it, nothing could be simpler: click on "Clear searches".

You are protected from the curious. Well at least on Facebook. 😀

A simple and practical tip that could be very useful to you when Facebook updates its search bar which will now be "intelligent" by offering you suitable results.
