How to Delete the Search History on Craigslist

When you search on Craigslist, your search location and visited links are saved. For instance, if you conduct a search in Florida, the next time you visit Craigslist you will be directed to the Florida Craigslist directory by default and any links that you clicked on previously will be marked in purple as visited links. If you don’t want other users to be able to see what you’ve been looking at on Craigslist, you can delete the search history.
