Instagram users who search for things frequently leave a trail behind that shows everything they’ve searched for, and to some who are used to hiding their tracks, this could be considered a privacy concern.
If you want to clear your search history from the Instagram app on your iPhone or iPod touch, then follow along as we take you through the simple steps to do so in this tutorial.
Any time you search for a page, a person, or even a trending topic, and you tap on any of the search result Instagram logs the pages you open under your search history.
This history appears any time you tap on the search field and attempt to perform a new search from the Instagram app.
So let’s say you wanted to clear all that and keep anyone from seeing what you’ve searched for in the past.
It’s really easy to do, and we’re going to show you how below.
To clear your search history from the Instagram app, you’ll want to follow these steps:
1) Launch the Instagram app and tap on your Profile tab from the bottom of the app.
2) Once on your profile, you’ll tap on the Settings cog at the top right of the app.
3) From the list of settings, scroll down to the bottom and tap on the Clear Search History button.
4) Confirm your selection by tapping the Yes, I’m sure button in the pop-up prompt.
Now you’re done. That wasn’t so hard, was it?
