How Do I Delete Reddit Search History on the Website?

When you use Reddit on the web, the search history is stored in your web browser, not the website itself. The main site stores the search history data in your browser cache, and the old queries you’ve searched are stored in your browser’s autofill history.

You can also delete the individual terms if you are unwilling to delete the entire history. You’ll see a list of searched terms on Reddit’s search bar where you can click X, or the trash icon found right next to the term you want to remove.

Here’s how to remove Reddit search terms individually:

  • Locate the Reddit website, and click on the search box.
  • Hover your cursor over the search term and click the X or the trashcan icon.
  • As the unwanted term is removed, you can repeat the same to remove more terms.
