Are you concerned about your privacy and want to delete your search history on your iPhone? You’ve come to the right place!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to delete your search history on your iPhone. Follow along and ensure your browsing habits remain private and secure.

Step 1: Open the Settings app

To begin, locate and tap on the Settings app icon on your iPhone’s home screen. The Settings app is represented by a gear icon and is usually found on the first page of your home screen.

Step 2: Scroll down and tap on Safari

Scroll down until you find the Safari option. Tap on it to access Safari’s settings.

Step 3: Access Clear History and Website Data

In Safari settings, scroll down until you see the ‘Clear History and Website Data’ option. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 4: Confirm Clearing History

A confirmation prompt will appear asking if you want to clear your history and website data. If you are sure about deleting your search history, tap on the ‘Clear History and Data’ button.

Note that this action also clears other website data such as cookies, so be aware that any saved login information or preferences may be lost.


  • If you only want to delete specific entries from your search history, you can do so by tapping on the ‘History’ tab in Safari, swiping left on individual items, and tapping ‘Delete’.
  • If you use multiple devices with the same iCloud account, clearing history and data on one device will also remove it from other devices.

Step 5: Verify Deletion

Once you have completed the above steps, your search history is now deleted. To ensure that it worked, open Safari and tap on the bookmarks icon at the bottom.

Then, tap on the ‘History’ tab. You should see an empty list if the deletion was successful.

In conclusion,

Your search history contains sensitive information about your browsing habits, and it’s essential to clear it regularly for privacy reasons. By following these simple steps, you can ensure your search history is deleted from your iPhone’s Safari browser. Remember to be cautious when clearing all website data as it may affect saved login information and preferences.

We hope this tutorial has been helpful in guiding you through the process of deleting your search history on your iPhone. Stay private, stay secure!
