I love my Motorola Droid (and Google Android), but I kept having a small issue: All my Google Searches were saved. That is, every time I went to perform a Google Search, the Google suggestions would show my previous search queries. I personally dislike this behavior, since it consumes screen real estate from the search suggestions. (I even disable the “remember form data” feature on my PC’s browser.)
Here is a picture of the problem:
If you click on the “Clear History” link, you get this pop-up:
The pop-up states: “Go to Preferences for more options.” For the longest time, I kept thinking it was a browser setting (even though the “Remember form data” option is disabled). But then it occurred to me: It’s a not a browser setting, it’s a website setting. Indeed, Google’s mobile search site has an option for saving mobile search history.
How to fix it?
Perform a Google search, and navigate to the bottom of the page. Click the “Preferences” link:
On the Preferences page, select the “Do not save searches” button, and then click “Save”:
And that’s all there is to it!
