How to Clear Your Google Maps Search History

Clearing your Google Maps search history couldn’t be easier! Here’s a little secret: just tap the three horizontal lines (the menu icon) in the top left corner of the screen. Then, scroll down until you find “Settings” – click on that sneaky little devil. Next, select “Privacy & security,” followed by “Manage location settings” and “Location History.” Once you arrive at this page, simply slide the switch to the OFF position. Poof! All gone. And guess what? Since I’m feeling extra generous,

I’ll let you in on another trick: clearing individual searches is child’s play too! Just head to “Your Timeline,” pick a day and long press on the entry you wish to eradicate. A delete button will magically appear—just hit it, and voila! Disappeared faster than magic tricks at a kid’s birthday party. Easy peasy.

To clear your search history in Google Maps, follow below steps:

  1. Open Google Maps on your device.
  2. Tap on the profile picture or initial located at the top right corner of the screen.
  3. Select ‘Settings’ from the dropdown list.
  4. Scroll down and choose ‘Maps history.’
  5. On the top right corner, tap ‘Delete activity by.’
  6. Choose ‘All time,’ and ensure ‘All products’ is selected under ‘Delete Activity.’
  7. Hit ‘Delete,’ and your entire Google Maps search history should now be cleared.

Remember, once deleted, the data cannot be recovered; hence, proceed cautiously. Happy exploring!
