How To Clear Your Instagram Search History

Many Instagram users want to know how to clear your Instagram search history Every platform and social media site is different when it comes to their cookies and browsing history, so there is a lot of inaccurate information on the internet about them.

If you want to delete your Instagram search history of every hashtag, person, or place you've searched for, here's what you need to do in just four easy steps:

  1. First you need to click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the app to open up the Settings / Options page.

  2. Next, scroll down the menu until you find the “Clear Search History Option”.

  3. Click on it and confirm you want to clear your search history by tapping the “Yes I’m Sure” popup.

  4. Return to your Search field to confirm your search history is no longer visible.

It’s important to note that going through these steps only clears the search history of the currently logged in username. If you use multiple Instagram accounts or are logged into several at once, you will need to individually clear their histories as well.

Now that you know how to clear your Instagram search history, you can stalk and creep to your heart's content!
