How to Delete Location Search History From AccuWeather App

In today’s digital age, privacy is a paramount concern for many users. With apps like AccuWeather, which provide weather forecasts and updates, your location data is crucial for accurate service. However, there may be times when you want to delete your location search history for privacy reasons or simply to declutter your app. In this comprehensive guide, I’ll walk you through the steps to delete location search history from the AccuWeather app on various platforms.

Deleting Locations on iOS

If you’re using the AccuWeather app on an iOS device, managing your location history is straightforward:

  1. Open the AccuWeather app.
  2. Tap the location name to open the Location Management menu.
  3. Tap and hold the location name you wish to delete.
  4. When the menu appears, select “Delete” to remove the location[1].

Please note that you cannot delete your current location as it is determined by GPS.

Removing Locations on Android

The process for Android users is quite similar:

  1. Launch the AccuWeather app.
  2. Tap the menu icon (three horizontal lines).
  3. In the location list, tap and hold the location you want to remove.
  4. Click the trash can icon that appears to delete the location[1].

If you make a mistake, you can tap the “Undo” button that appears immediately after deletion. Remember, your current location cannot be deleted, and there must be at least two locations in the list to perform deletions[1].

Clearing Browser History

For those who use AccuWeather through a web browser, deleting location history involves clearing cookies:

  1. Open your browser and go to the settings menu.
  2. Navigate to “Privacy and security” and then “Site Settings.”
  3. Click on “Cookies and site data” followed by “See all cookies and site data.”
  4. Use the search field to enter “accuweather” and find all related entries.
  5. Click the trash can icon next to each entry to delete AccuWeather cookies[1].

This will remove the recent locations you’ve searched for on the AccuWeather website.

Mobile Website Considerations

On the mobile version of the AccuWeather website, only the last three searched locations are displayed. To remove these, you’ll also need to delete cookies in your mobile browser. The process may vary slightly depending on the browser you’re using[1].

Privacy Concerns

It’s important to be aware of privacy concerns when using apps like AccuWeather. In the past, there have been concerns about user data being sold, even if users opt out of location tracking[3]. Always review the privacy policy of any app you use and adjust your settings accordingly to protect your personal information[2].

Alternatives to AccuWeather

If you’re looking for alternatives to AccuWeather that may offer different privacy options or features, there are many other weather forecast tools and apps available[4]. Some popular alternatives include Geometric Weather, Breezy Weather, and Windy, which you can explore to find the one that best suits your needs.


Maintaining your privacy while using weather apps like AccuWeather is essential. By following the steps outlined above, you can effectively manage and delete your location search history. Always stay informed about the privacy practices of the apps you use and take the necessary steps to protect your personal data.

Remember, if you have any questions or concerns about AccuWeather’s privacy policy or need assistance with their services, you can contact their support team for help[2][6]. Your privacy is in your hands, and taking these steps ensures you have control over your location data.
