If you’re concerned about privacy, or simply don’t want recent searches to show up when you’re trying to search for something else, clearing your suggested searches on Instagram is a good idea.

Here’s how to do it:

To clear your suggested searches on Instagram, first, open the app and log in to your account. Go to your profile and tap the hamburger button at the top. Tap Settings. Search “searches”, and tap “Recent searches”. To clear all suggested searches, tap Clear All.

Instagram has an official app on Android and iPhone. It has an easy method to clear search history on it. You can clear in two different ways:

  • clear all search history
  • clear search history individually

You can either clear all of them, or you can clear a specific account or hashtag from search history. Both can be done in the Instagram app on Android and iPhone.

This method can be done in the Instagram mobile app on Android and iPhone, mobile browsers, and PC/Mac browsers. It’s as easy as clearing Spotify queues.
