How To Clear Facebook Search History

Facebook keeps a track of all previous searches made (searching for people, places, pages and so on) and uses that to suggest and display similar items.

This search activity can however be deleted if needed. Here is how :

Log in to Facebook and go to the All Activity page here.

Activity log in Facebook


Then click on “More” to display the “Search” option.
