How to Delete Google Play Store Search History

In this post, we’ll see how to clear Google Play Store search history. Let’s get started.


  1. Open Play Store app.

  2. Hit the Hamburger icon (three vertical lines) at the top > Settings (which you can find beneath Play Protect).

  3. Tap “Clear local search history,” which you can find beneath “Auto-update apps.”

    Clear local search history option

That’s it. The search history is removed from your Android device and not from your Google Account. Remember that your every search is stored in both the Android device and Google account.

Follow the below steps to remove the search history from your Google account:

Go to this URL in the browser.

Hit Data & personalization > Web & App Activity > Manage Activity.

Hit “+” icon beneath the search box > Google Play Store > Apply.

Now, you can see all the searches you’ve done and the apps you’ve visited in the Play Store along with the Play Store visit.

To delete an individual search: Find the search you like to remove. Hit the Overflow menu beside it and then hit the “Delete” option. In the confirmation pop-up, hit “Delete.”

If you want to remove searches of an entire day, click on the “Trash can” beside the date and then hit “Delete” in the pop-up. Remember that this will remove the whole history of that day.

To remove all at once (remember that this will delete searches, app visits in the Play Store along with the Play Store visit):

  1. Hit the Hamburger icon at the top > Delete activity by.
  2. From the first drop-down list, choose “All time.”
  3. Open the drop-down list above the “Delete” option. Select “Google Play Store.”
  4. Tap the “Delete” option.
  5. In the confirmation pop-up, tap “Delete.”
