To clear all of your search histories, click the “Clear Searches” link at the top of the page.

A confirmation dialog box displays for this action, as well, reminding you that your search history helps them show you better results when you search. What they don’t say is that it also helps them collect information about you. If you would rather not provide them that information, click “Clear Searches” to remove your entire search history.


N/B: Search logging hasn’t been disabled, it simply means that you are limiting the information Facebook collects about you and that what you have currently searched for has been cleared. You may likely want to do this clearing on a routine basis.
