How To Delete Instagram Search History


To delete your Instagram search history:

  1. Open the Instagram app on your iPhone or Android.
  2. Tap the profile icon in the bottom right.
  3. Tap the settings icon in the top right (three dots on Android; gear icon on iOS)
  4. Scroll down and tap “Clear Search History”
  5. A popup will appear. Tap “Yes, I’m sure”.

There you have it.  

Easy peasy, right?  

Now no one will know that you’ve been stalking that ex you haven’t seen in 5 years.

Still not enough?

Instagram may still populate your search results with past searches once you type the first few letters.

Fortunately there’s a way to fix that too, but we’ll have to save it for another post.

What about those pesky #hashtags?

You can hide those too!
