Facebook tracks each and every word you enter into the search box and more often you don’t feel comfortable with it even if the data privacy is set to ‘only you’. You check some profiles regularly and let’s face it, most of us are habitual of stalking that ex- girlfriend/ boyfriend, but we are always afraid to be looked up if someone uses your phone or desktop. Don’t worry, keep on searching whatever you want and just delete your Facebook search history; it’s a simple but a very useful process. See the tricks below:

1. Go to your profile

Go to your Facebook profile and click ‘Activity Log’ button placed at the bottom right of your Facebook cover photo.
