To delete all search history, follow the steps mentioned below for the 5 most popular Android web browsers, as well as the Google search application included Android or for any other application (Google Play, Youtube) almost always are the same steps.

Under Settings, go to the privacy and security session to delete different types of browsing data: Clear History, Clear Cache, Delete History, Delete Cookies, Delete Form Data, and Delete Location Access. You can also delete passwords saved in the browser.
