The Bing search engine includes a Search History setting that enables you to remove search results individually or clear all of your previous searches. Clearing your history will minimize the risk of other people snooping through your Internet research, especially if you work at a shared computer. You can also control this recording of your searches by selecting the "On" or "Off" options in the History sections.
Bing on the Browser
Click the "Search History" link on the Bing homepage or search list to open the History page. Your search results will display in squares. You can also click the "More" link on the Bing homepage or search list, and then click “Search history” in the My Bing section to open this History page.
Point over search items, such as in the Today section, to display the "Clear" button. Click "Clear" to remove this item from the list. If you cleared all recent items, the message "You have no recent searches" displays.
Select "Clear all" to remove all search items. Click "Yes, clear all search history" when asked to confirm this action. Your searches will disappear from the History page.
Android App for Tablets
Open the Bing app, tap the "Menu" button to open the drop-down list and then tap "Settings" to display the Bing Settings screen.
Tap "Search" in the General Settings section to open the Settings page. Tap "Go to Search History" to open the Search History section. Tap "View your searches" to open your search list.
Tap "Edit search results." Each search item includes an "X" button to remove this item. Tap "X" to remove items one at a time. Tap "Clear" to remove all items, and then tap "Clear All" to confirm. The Recent Searches section displays this message: "You’ve cleared all your search history." Tap "Return to Settings."
Launch the Bing app and tap the icon that looks like a bulleted list.
