View or delete search history
If you're trying to find a particular video you have searched for in the past, search history may help. Your YouTube search history lets you view your previous search queries on YouTube. Your YouTube and Google search history also influence the recommendations that you see on your Home.
You're in control — you can clear your entire search history, remove individual search entries from search suggestions, or pause your search history.
- Search entries you delete will no longer influence your recommendations.
- After clearing your search history, your past searches will no longer show as suggestions in the search box.
- Search queries you enter while your search history is paused will not be saved in your search history.
Keep in mind that any searches you make while logged in to your account will appear in your account's search history across devices.
