deleting search history

Hi there 

So here's my problem 

When I search something from the browser and would like to delete search history it's not totally being deleted...

I've tried going to the 3 dots tapping clear history and clearing cookies and other data

But whenever I go to the integrated search between the call and camera icons and type in the keywords it all shows up in suggestions ( links to all the pass sites I been on) 

I've went into settings tapped on search tapped clear search but nothing happens it's all there 

So my question is how to I delete those search suggestions when I type from the integrated search icon on BlackBerry z10??? 

Please please please help

Re: deleting search history

Go to System Settings, Search, Categories. Clear the checkmark against Browser. Clear the search history. That should do it.

Re: deleting search history

I tried the above steps on my device — clearing cookies/data and history in the browser; clearing the browser checkmark in search history. It worked for me.

The only other possibility I can think of is to clear "Learned words" under System Settings, Language and Input, Prediction and Correction.

If these don't work, I can't think of anything else. Sorry.

Let's recap.

 

1)  Clear the history and cookies/data as you noted in your first post.

2)  Then go to the home screen > Settings > Search.  Tap Categories.  Scroll down to Browser and clear that checkmark. (Uncheck it.)

3)  While still in search, tap History > Delete Search History.

 

After these steps, your device should have no record of web sites you've browsed, except those with bookmarks saved.  You could also do a restart for good measure.

Re: deleting search history

I understand the procedure
Ok is your check mark still unchecked?
I'm asking you now to try this...recheck the checkmark and go back to the integrated search
I'm 100% sure if u type something u searched for in the past
It will show up
If not maybe it's just my phone

The simple answer is, don't check the box against the browser again.  If you do, it will show browser history again in a search.
