This is a new feature, inside the activity log. In the past you couldn't view your searches.

As far as I know, the only way to remove a search from the activity log is manually removing each search.

I know no one else can see my private activity log, which contains my past searches - I can only view them by checking the "Include Only Me activity" box:

but since I log in to my account on a shared computer and sometimes leave Facebook open, I am afraid someone will be able to see my past searches.

I have to find a way to delete all of my searches in the activity log. Is that possible somehow?

Go to facebook.com/{your username goes here}/allactivity → click on MORE just under Photos & Likes, on the left side column → click on Search → click on Clear Searches on top.

  • Thank you. I would also want to clear my searches on Facebook's databases, so that when searching, a person that I visit his profile more often, won't show up first - but I guess that's impossible.
