    Search Bar Problems

    Hi there,

    I'm having a little problem with my 2019 Kindle Fire 7. I recently cleared my browsing history on Silk browser, but this didn't extend to the search bar shortcut on the home screen. I individually deleted this history on the dropdown by clicking on the 'x' individually. This worked, but still if I search for something new on this search bar, suggestions come up starting with the same letter next to a magnifying glass icon of specific searches I have looked up and I have no idea how to wipe this. Does anyone have any clue?

    Thanks so much everyone - much appreciated!

    Some of this is done by the " internet " as part of the service, it predicts what you are going type based on other peoples searches, there should be away to turn it off in settings, other than that clear the data cashe, though the cashe may be at the dns server, which remembers your searches to speed up the process, in which case your stuck, though I've seen apps that claim to clear that ?

    8f your searching for things that may be embarrassing if they pop up when someone else uses it, then install tenta browser, it a) wipes its self when you close it and b) has a pin lock so no one else can access it and c) encrypt everything so even you provider does know what you've search for
