  1. Tap My Waze and then tap 
  2. Tap Privacy

  4. Tap a month to view your Navigation history for that month
  5. Tap the X beside any drive to delete it. Or, tap Delete all drives at the top of the screen to delete your entire Navigation history. 
Note: Deleting your Navigation history won’t delete your Saved places or Recent locations. These are saved on your phone and can be deleted individually

How do I turn notifications about trip suggestions on/off?

Waze automatically sends you notifications with important info about trip suggestions like:

  • If there will be significant delays due to traffic or road closures
  • When you should leave to arrive on time

To turn trip suggestion notifications on or off, you'll need to update your settings in two places:

 On your phone 

  1. Open the settings app
  2. Tap Apps
  3. In the list of apps, tap Waze
  4. Tap Notifications
  5. Toggle Show notifications on or off

Note: Steps may vary by device.

In the Waze app

  1. Tap My Waze
  2. Tap 
  3. Tap General Trip suggestions
  4. Turn on or off Get traffic updates
Note: You can also control what types of notifications you get from the notifications settings.

How do I turn trip suggestions on/off?

Trip suggestions are turned on by default. To turn them off:

  1. Tap My Waze and then tap 
  2. Tap General Trip suggestions
  3. Turn off Show trip suggestions

Note: You’ll always see info about plan a drive, calendar events, and confirmed carpools – even when this is turned off.

How do I remove trip suggestions?

To remove a single trip suggestion:

  1. On the suggestion, tap the three dots icon
  2. Tap Remove suggestion
  3. Tap Remove

You may still get trip suggestions with a similar origin/destination and departure time.

To remove all similar trip suggestions:

  1. On the suggestion, tap the three dots icon
  2. Tap Remove similar suggestions
  3. Tap Remove

Why can’t I remove some trip suggestions?

If you tried to remove a trip suggestion but it still appears, do the following:

  • Check your internet connection – If you see a “No network” error message, it means your device isn’t connected to the internet. Make sure you’re connected and have a strong signal.
  • Try closing and reopening the app

If that doesn’t work, it could be because the card you’re seeing isn’t a trip suggestion but a calendar event. You can remove this type of card in the following ways:

From the search menu

  1. Tap My Waze 
  2. Tap the three dots next to the event you want to remove
  3. Tap Remove

From the "Plan a drive" screen

  1. Tap My Waze and then Plan a drive
  2. Tap the three dots next to the event you want to remove
  3. Tap Remove

From your calendar app

  1. Open your calendar app
  2. Tap the event you want to remove
  3. Tap the three dots in the top-right corner and then Delete
  4. Tap Delete again to confirm

Note: Steps may vary by calendar app.

You’ll need to restart Waze for the change to take effect.
