On Bing Chat AI, you can clear the search history, and in this guide, you will learn how. When using the new Bing chatbot experience, Microsoft doesn’t collect and stores everything you type in the “Chat” box. Anything you type in the box gets erased as soon as you close the tab or click the “Clear” (broom) button on the left.

However, the service grabs and stores the query intent as part of the search history on Bing. The search query intent is that key phrase that appears next to “Search for” after submitting the question.

Although you don’t have to worry about the company storing every question you ask the Bing Chat AI, if you are still concerned about your privacy, you can delete the Bing search history from your account.

This guide will teach you the easy steps to clear the Bing Chat AI search query history.

Once you complete the steps, the chat history will be removed from your Microsoft account.

You won’t have access to the Bing Chat history if you don’t have access to the service. The new Bing is still in limited preview, and you must sign up to receive an invitation to use the service. Also, at the time of the writing, the Chat is limited to ten queries per session and up to 120 sessions per day.
