    To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
    Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen. At the bottom, we will see icons. It is one of these icons that we now need to access, as we need to open up the applications folder.

    Find the Play Store application.
    In this demonstration, it is in the second row. The icon is a white shopping bag with a colorful shape on it. Underneath, there are the words "Play Store". Press down on this icon and the Google Play Store application will open. What we will show now is the search bar.

  5. 5
    Press the icon located in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
    It is shaped like a white magnifying glass. Pressing the icon brings up the search bar and two of our previous searches from our search history. We searched for "fun games" and "home". What we want to do in this video is show how to clear this local search history so that none of it will show here. This is good if we want to get rid of all the information, so people cannot see what has been searched recently.
