How to Clear Google Maps Search History on iPhone, iPad, and Computer

From time to time, you would like to delete Google Maps search history on your iOS device or computer. Personally, I remove the Google Maps history and the app data to keep the privacy about what I search intact.

“Google Maps” saves your search history to improve the navigation experience. For instance, it will show you directions and places that you recently searched, shared or reviewed. However, you get the complete freedom to delete Google Maps search history on your iPhone, iPad or computer on your own terms.

You can remove the entire Google Maps history at once or delete the locations individually. Additionally, there is also an option to clean up the app data including the offline maps and cache. Let’s get going!
