How to Clear Your Facebook Search History

How to Clear Your Facebook Search History

Do you know that each time you search for something using the Facebook search bar, it gets saved to your search history? Yes, Facebook keeps a record of everything you search for on the blue site.

Fortunately, you don't have to worry about the search history. You're the only one who can see it on your Facebook account as long as no one else knows your ID and password. But to increase your privacy, it may be better to clear your Facebook search history regularly. Why regularly? because unlike YouTube and most online platforms, Facebook doesn't offer any option to pause the search history permanently. You can remove single search items or the entire search history at once but you can't pause it permanently.

If you would like to delete your Facebook search history, you can follow this step-by-step tutorial, I'll show you how to view and delete your search history on Facebook either one-by-one or all at once on both computer and phone.
