How to delete Flipkart search history?

Like other online retail services, Flipkart saves the data of its registered customers, including contact details, login ID, previous orders and even their search history.

Flipkart stores search history in its cloud servers and if you are an avid user of the app you must be aware that the platform does not provide a direct option to erase your search history.

With all that said, getting rid of your Flipkart search history basically entails either searching more products to re-populate the search history or clearing out the app’s data on your device. Follow our guides below to delete Flipkart search history.
