    Are there any apps that conveniently clear your google search data without you having to go in and press the button like HistoryEraser? I just want to clear the history right in the app. If this isn't possible, because I'm pretty sure someone would've thought of making it by now if it's not existing yet, can someone please tell me why?

    You can't. Your pr0n searches are now permanently on display for everyone to see.

    Sorry ryanB, the app doesn't automatically clean it for you. It just redirects you to clean it in the settings by yourself, meaning the automatic cleaner doesn't delete it and the widget won't either. Thanks though

    When you say clear Google search data are you referring to the stock browser history ?

    I'm referring to when you press the search button on your phone, and after the searches are made, they come up as shortcuts later. I'm talking about those shortcuts. Sorry for not clarifying

    I don't know if this can help you. Look for the Android Settings app. This should be part of the stock Android.

    Settings -> Search -> Google search settings -> Show web suggestions and under Don't show suggestions from Google as you type (this is a checkbox, check it)

    Sorry, the suggestions and shortcuts are two different things.

    Nevermind, i found a solution. Open up google search, hit menu, search settings, searnchable items, then uncheck "web" and anything else that might have private stuff on it popping up.

    Actually OP, the app I recommended to you does clear cache automatically. I have mine set for weekly clearing.
