Clear Facebook Search History

I really did not even understand Facebook videotaped the important things you look for. Exists any way to delete my search background? And is there a way to avoid Facebook from waiting to begin with?

Rick's response: Hey there Alveda. Before I address your inquiries, I strongly suggest securing down your Facebook account today in order to stop your ex (or anyone else) from getting into it to begin with. It's not all that difficult to accomplish. This blog post clarifies how you can do it, detailed.

Since you have secured down your account, I'll address your 2nd inquiry first. The response is no, Facebook doesn't permit you to prevent them from putting together a checklist of your searches.

Why? Since they utilize your search background in order to help them choose which advertisements to show while you're utilizing the website. They know that if they can show ads connected to the topics you have an interest in, you'll be much more likely to click on them. Which brings us back your very first concern ...

You could easily delete your entire Facebook search history with simply a couple of clicks, making it easy to do so every single time you prepare to log out of your account. Below's just how:

1-- Browse through your Timeline web page as well as click the View Activity Log button (you'll find it in the lower right-hand corner of your cover photo).

2-- Look in the much left column and click the More link that lies just under Photos, Likes and Comments.

3-- Click the Search link that lies at the end of the checklist.

4-- Click the Clear Searches link that located on the right-hand side of the huge white bar on top of the window.

5-- A dialog box will pop up asking you to verify that you actually intend to remove your search background. To finish the procedure, click the Clear Searches connect located at the top-right side of the window.
