Clear Search term History in Samsung Internet

The web browser stores most browsing information locally and syncs across devices. It also stores the search terms you’ve entered into search engines.

Thankfully, the Samsung Internet browser offers an easy way to clear search history from the suggestion box itself.

In this guide, I have shared written instruction about:

Remove Search Term History

The Samsung Internet saves all the search phrases we use to look up on search engines. These search terms are used for reusability and personalization. However, we can quickly clear these search keywords with a single tap.

  1. Launch the Samsung Internet browser on your phone.
  2. Clear the Omnibox field.
    It will start displaying the recent search terms and most search words.
  3. Tap the Close X next to the search term.

  4. To confirm, hit the Delete button.
    It will remove the search term from the search history suggestions.

I know it is quite a tedious process if you’ve tonnes of search terms. Hence, clearing the browser data should also be considered complementary.

Delete Browser and Site Data

Samsung Internet browser does not have a built-in option or setting to clear only search history or search terms. Instead, we need to clear browsing history and other temporary site data. Here are the steps to clear:

  1. Launch the Samsung Internet on your Android smartphone.
  2. Tap on More horizontal 3-bar icon for the menu list, and select the Settings menu from the list.
  3. Under the Advanced section, tap on the Privacy and Security menu.

  4. Now under the Personal Data section, tap on the Delete browser data menu tab.

  5. Enable the checkbox for Browsing history, Cache, Cookies, and site data.

  6. Hit the Delete button to confirm your request.
    It will clear all temporary data stored in the Internet browser.

Any search terms stored in the Samsung browser will also be removed along with data.

Note: Clearing the browser data will delete temporary files that will lead to slow loading of websites for a few instances. It will also sign out from the accounts.

Bottom Line

We recommend you clear your browsing history regularly to keep your personal information safe.

I feel that Samsung Internet should also add an option to clear the search term history from the browser. Perhaps, that will be a good add-on for regular internet browser users.
