How to Delete All Search History on Facebook

I’m sure you’ve heard a lot about Facebook’s Chart Browse Tool lately. It’s a new search feature that allows you to look for anything.

One of the most important functions of chart search is to mine other users’ personal details and “like” information. Is this a good or poor idea? Isn’t it true that having likes and profile information is a positive thing? Actually, no.

 

When you do a chart search, you’ll find a huge gold mine of what’s known as Open-source Intelligence (OSINT). OSINT is a type of intelligence information about individuals that is publicly visible and accessible to anyone in the globe. Unless you’ve removed a lot of personal information from your profile or made all of your likes private, there’s probably a lot of OSINT about you available through Facebook’s Chart Browse.

 

Getting rid of sensitive personal information from your profile and hiding likes can help you avoid some chart searches, but have you considered the searches you’ve made?

 

Regrettably, the searches you conduct on chart explore are logged and added to your Facebook Activity Log. These searches are set to be viewed just by you by default, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Your Facebook Activity record still contains the searches, and Facebook has access to them. Also, if you leave your Facebook account open on their computer system and check your activity log, your friends could see what you’ve been looking for.

 

What is the best way to delete your Facebook search history?

To get rid of your Chart Browse history, follow these simple steps:

USE THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS IN YOUR BROWSER:

  • Visit Facebook and click the ‘Search’ button without typing in any search terms.
  • Select ‘Edit’ from the list of options that appears.
  • Select ‘Clear Searches’ from the drop-down menu.
  • When a pop-up window appears asking if you’re sure you want to clear your searches, select ‘Clear Searches.’

Connect to Facebook.

  • Select “Activity Log” from the drop-down menu by clicking the down arrow in the upper-right corner of the page.
  • On the left side of the Activity Log screen, a list of options appears. To enlarge the list, click “More” under “Comments.”
  • In the expanded list, select “Search.”
  • A date-ordered list of all your searches is provided. To delete a single search item, pick “Delete” from the drop-down menu by clicking the block icon to the right of the item.
  • Make sure you want to remove the search by using the “Remove Search” dialog box. To finish the removing procedure, click “Remove Search.”
  • To remove all of your search histories, go to the top of the page and select the “Clear Searches” option.

This action is also accompanied by a confirmation dialog box, which reminds you that your search history aids them in providing you with better results when you search. They don’t mention that it also aids in the collection of information on you. If you don’t want to provide them that information, you can clear your search history by clicking “Clear Searches.”

 

ON YOUR APPLICATION ON FACEBOOK

  • Without typing any search terms, press the ‘Search’ button.
  • Select ‘Edit’ from the list of options that appears.
  • Select ‘Clear Searches’ from the drop-down menu.
  • You’ll see a pop-up asking if you’re sure you want to clear the searches you’ve done; click ‘Confirm’.

N/B: Search logging hasn’t been turned off; it merely means you’re restricting the information Facebook collects about you and clearing what you’ve recently looked for. It’s likely that you’ll want to do this clearing on a regular basis.
