Disabling Suggestions

UPDATE: I found a solution that may work for me brave://settings/privacy > Clear browsing data > On Exit > Autofill form data > Check the box On > Save

This has indeed disabled those suggestions I complained about. This also disables, for example, suggested addresses I got when writing an e-mail., and other similar form data. This works for me, but consider whether it does for you before doing it!

Is there a way to remove suggestions from text boxes? This is not related to the address bar, or to specific websites’ suggestion systems, but to Brave suggestions.


I am using my school’s webmail website to write an e-mail. When inputting the subject, I get a suggestion list with subjects I have used in previous emails.

I am using a library website. When I want to search for a book on the library catalog search box, I get a suggestion menu with queries I have previously searched.

Is there a way to blanket remove these kinds of suggestions? I have looked around settings, but don’t know whether it’s possible.

Thank you.

Hello there @herwegh try going to brave://settings/privacy > Autocomplete searches and URLs > toggle it off to see if your searches no longer display on that page.

Let me know if that works.

Thank you, but unfortunately not. It was already off.

Does the previous search you made on that page deletes with those steps you provided?

Yes, they did disappear.
