Are you fed up with all the inappropriate search suggestions on Instagram? What can we do to stop all these suggestions that we are not interested to see all the time? Has the algorithm in Instagram become crazy to show us all this stuff!?

In this short article, I’m going to show you how you can stop all the irrelevant search suggestions, so make sure to read it to the end as it’ll only take a few minutes of your time.

What Are Instagram Search Suggestions?

First, let’s see what search suggestions are. This is simply a tool, algorithm, or something in Instagram that can guess what topic or searches you are interested in. Sometimes the tools guess correctly and it suggests to you the searches that you are interested in. However sometimes it may not guess correctly, and as a result, it’ll show you inappropriate searches.

Also, you play an important part in this too. I mean there are times when you just search for a topic or something and after that, the app will guess you are interested in that topic and it’ll suggest you more related searches.

How To Stop Or Clear Search Suggestions?

Stopping this is so simple. Follow the steps below and get rid of the search suggestions.

  • Open the app.
  • Click on the search icon at the bottom left corner.
  • Now click on the search bar at the top. You should be able to see all the recent searches.
  • Click “See all” and then click “Clear all”.

You can also clear those that you are not interested in. You don’t have to click “Clear all” if you are interested in some of them.

Other Methods To Stop Search Suggestions.

  • Block the account

Well, you may clear the search suggestions, but the app still suggests to you all those searches, content, or whatever that is related to them. What can we do in such cases?

If the above method did not work and the app keeps suggesting to you all the irrelevant searches you don’t want to see, simply block that account, and there will be no more suggestions.

  • Clear Cache And Data

In cases that the app keeps suggesting to you the searches you are not interested in, you can clear cache and data. Doing this will delete all the data you’ve searched in the past and also the irrelevant searches will be probably stopped.

Conclusion. Irrelevant search suggestions from Instagram can be a pain in the neck, however, in this short article, I’ve explained how you can get rid of irrelevant search suggestions. Hopefully, you have found this article helpful and get rid of all the inappropriate search suggestions.
