I've got a problem with the Youtube app's search history. It contains only two entries and none of the searches done before or after are shown. The app doesn't save the new entries.

I tried removing both cache and data for the app, but that didn't help. The 2 entries are restored soon after I log in again.

I'd like to remove all entries, or make new entries show up again - I'm happy with either solution.


Delete individual searches

You can delete individual searches from your search history when you’re signed in with your account by following these steps:

1.Tap the search icon

2.Tap and hold a suggested search result with the history icon next to it.

3.Tap Remove on the pop-up asking if you want to remove this entry from your search history.

Clear your entire search history

To clear search history for your account, go to Menu > Settings > Privacy and tap Clear search history.

  • That worked just fine for removing the entries. New entries are still not saved, but that's not a big deal.
