How to Delete Auto-Fill Page Suggestions from Android Chrome

Chrome has a helpful habit of popping up with suggested web pages and search terms as you type something in to the address or search bar. This is usually a good thing, but there are times of the year when it can be a bummer.

For instance, you might have been researching certain types of gifts around Christmas, after which you'll not need those pages or search terms again for another year. Alternatively, you might have switched jobs, and are sick of your old workplace's website popping up over and over. There are a myriad of reasons you'd want to ditch specific suggestions from your life, without necessarily affecting others.

Lucky for you, removing an auto-fill page suggestion from your search bar in Chrome for Android is ultra-simple. When you see the offending address, or search prompt, just tap and hold.

You’ll be asked if you want to delete the suggestion, after which it will not appear again, unless you once again start visiting that website, or using that search term regularly.

That's it, you're done. Do this each time you see a web page pop up that you'd rather not be there, and pretty soon you'll have a clutter-free list of suggestions.
