Were you aware that Facebook saves your search results? Whenever you search for a long lost friend, spy on an ex-girlfriend or simply look up information via the Facebook search bar that information is saved inside of your account settings.

For users looking to increase their own privacy Facebook searches can be deleted and the process is surprisingly simple (at least in terms of Facebook use).

First go to and when logged in you should see the “Activity Log” option below your cover photo:

After clicking on Activity Log look to the left side of your FB page and you will see “Photos, Likes, Comments” and the “More” link. Click on the “More” link.
