Why Delete Facebook Search History from Android?

 

Like some search engines, Google and Yahoo for example, Facebook is able to record your search histories. The app gathers as much information about you as possible and sells it to advertisers. Because of this, it can offer suggestions according to your searches and interests. However, this can cause info leak. Besides, you may want to remove irrelevant or unwanted search items. But the thing is that you cannot clear your search history by deleting the cookies from your Android because Facebook comes with a special button to clear search history. Below are steps on it:
