If you are browsing Craigslist on your iPhone or iPad, the easiest way to delete your browsing history is by using the “Clear History” feature. To clear your history, tap on the “HISTORY” icon in the upper right corner of any section. This will open up a menu that gives you three options: Search History, Missed Connections and Saved Searches. Tap on the “X” symbol to display a check mark and select which items you want to remove. The Clear History option will present itself after you have selected one or more items from this list. When you press “CLEAR HISTORY,” another pop-up appears asking if you really want to delete all selected searches and search terms. Once again, press “CLEAR HISTORY” and all of your searches will be removed. If you are viewing a section on Craigslist, such as the Personals or Jobs listings, then click on “X” at the top of that page to open up the menu. Choose “CLEAR SEARCH”. This option is located directly next to “CANCEL SEARCH” and is highlighted in blue. Another pop-up appears asking if you really want to clear this search. Again, press CLEAR SEARCH and your browsing history has been deleted.
Deleting Craigslist Searches From The iPhone App
If you’re using the mobile app rather than a computer browser to browse Craigslist, then delete any saved searches by opening up your profile menu and selecting “Saved Searches.” Press the red circle with a minus symbol and choose either “Delete Saved Search” or “Delete All Saved Searches.” This will open up a pop-up asking if you really want to remove these searches. After pressing DELETE SEARCH, the search is removed from your saved searches list.
Deleting Craigslist Searches From The Android App
In order to delete any of your saved searches, tap on the menu icon at top right corner of screen then select ‘Settings.’ You can then choose ‘Search’ and scroll down to find your list of ‘Favorites’. In this section, press the trashcan icon next to any listings in which you no longer wish to receive updates.
I have removed my browser history, but how do I remove my search history from Craigslist?
If you have cleared your browsing history as described above, then keep in mind that there are still ways to access your search history on craigslist. You may receive an email notification if anyone views your current or previous listings. The same goes if you end up getting a call or text message from someone who responded to one of your ads. You can easily check and/or delete old searches by going to www.craigslist.org and clicking on the “Searches” link located at top right hand corner of the page next to your username bubble.

Why did I get an email that someone viewed my ad?
If a user views your listing while signed in to their account, you may receive an email notification of the views. This is done via tracking pixels within your listings and does not include personal information about the viewer, such as their name and address. Additionally, these notifications can be turned off by going to “Settings” then “Notifications.” If a user views your listing while not signed into their account or if they are using an incognito browser window, then you will not receive any emails from Craigslist regarding the visit. Craigslist supports anonymous browsing and does not store IP addresses for users. It is possible for you to sign into your craigslist account and click the link that says “Viewed This Ad” if you wish to see who viewed posts on your behalf.
How do I check my history of missed connections in Craigslist?
The same as any search, you can access this list by clicking on the “X” symbol located at top right side of screen next to the username bubble. Choose between either Missed Connections or Saved Searches then press MISSED CONNECTIONS in order to view all searches tied to your craigslist account. Press CLEAR HISTORY to delete these items from this menu.
Can I remove saved searches from my search history?
You have the option to delete your saved searches by following the instructions below:
1. Click on this link www.craigslist.org/about/help/faq_searching and log into your account via the ‘Sign In’ or ‘Create Account’ links located at top right side of screen if you have not done so already.
2. When logged in, scroll down to the bottom of page and click on section titled “How do I clear my browsing history?” Read all available information before clicking on question mark icon directly below this heading. This will open a pop-up that leads you through a step-by-step guide for deleting your search history including how to remove saved searches from both your desktop browser and mobile device(s).
3. If you no longer wish to receive notifications about any searches that you have saved, click on “Search” from the menu located at top right side of screen then select ‘Settings’ followed by ‘Notifications’. Scroll down and press trashcan icon next to any listings in which you no longer wish to receive updates.
Note: Deleting your search history does not remove itemized listings but only removes the actual list of searches tied to your account for the specific browser or device(s) whereas they were created. This means that if someone accesses an old saved search via another browser or a different device, they will still be able to view all original details pertaining to this search including comments, email alerts, etc. This is in place to protect our users’ privacy and ensure that no personal information regarding other members is leaked or distributed without a member’s prior consent.
What should I do if I suspect my email address has been compromised?
Email addresses are incredibly sensitive pieces of information and should be treated as such. In the event you believe your email was accessed by an unauthorized party, change your password immediately by going to www.craigslist.org/about/help/faq_account_maintenance then follow instructions listed under “How do I change my account password?” If you have not changed your password within the last 60 days, it will be reset automatically for you without needing additional action on your part.
