Hello there, if you are looking for a way to do away with your Facebook account activity log, then kindly follow this quick guide on how to delete Facebook activity Log in 2020.

Delete Facebook Activity Log

Facebook just like other social media platforms, has features that easies it’s used and as well make it more convenient and fun to its subscribers.

Some of these features come as a default setting which can be changed in due course depending on the choice of the user while others are can be downloaded into the already existed account.

The activity log is one of the feature that has made Facebook a reliable home, this makes it possible for users to have access to the history of what had been done in the account depending on he period fo time of their choice.

At times, people delete their activity log for security reasons. Whatever could be your own reason for wanting to carry out this activity log wipe-out exercise, just know WE go your back.

Deleting Facebook activity log can be done as fast as possible, and in this article, I will show you how.

A quick method to delete Facebook Activity Log:

Go to Activity Log. Click on More link (just under Photos, likes, comment) provided in the right section.. then click on the Search option.
You will see an option “Clear Searches“.. click on that and you are done!!!

How to remove a Search from Activity Log

Your activity log includes a list of the things you search for on Facebook. Remember, no one else can see your activity log.

To remove a search:

  1. Open your activity log, click More, and then select Search from the left column
  2. Click next to the search entry you want to remove
  3. Click Delete

However, we came across a few browser extensions and user-scripts for the web that are ‘in a way’ capable of removing all the Facebook activities in the activity log.

Unfortunately, they either worked briefly or simply hid the post and not delete it. Writing a user-script for this task is really challenging as Facebook keeps updating its site to counter any removal tools and scripts.

Therefore, as a user who desperately wants to remove your past embarrassments or other stuff from your Facebook timeline, you only have two options.

Delete your Facebook activity one by one

If you still need your account, this is the only way you’ll have to do it. You can either go through your past posts by year in your timeline and remove it or use the little-known tool on this day to find your old stuff on Facebook and delete it.

The only downside is that you’ll have to repeat it for a few days to search for and remove every old stuff you have posted on your timeline. Is that regret? 😛 Cool! Everyone feels the same when looking at their old posts.

Another option is to use a macro to finish the job, but with Facebook changing from time to time, it is impossible to get hold of one that does the job. Try your own luck with iMacros for Chrome and Firefox. Here is the macro that worked for us in 2013. You’ll have to run this macro from the activity page.

VERSION BUILD=8820413 RECORDER=FX

TAB T=1

SET !ERRORIGNORE YES

URL GOTO=https://www.facebook.com/<your user name>/allactivity

WAIT SECONDS=2

URL GOTO=javascript:window.scrollBy(0,40000)

TAG POS=1 TYPE=I ATTR=CLASS:mrs<SP>_2fmu<SP>img<SP>sp_QBCOUI41A2w<SP>sx_ab5bdb&&TXT:

TAG POS=2 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:Delete

WAIT SECONDS=2

TAG POS=1 TYPE=BUTTON FORM=class:_s ATTR=TXT:Delete<SP>Post

WAIT SECONDS=3

On the front of the extension, there is this really shady one called “F___book Post Manager” that has so many fake and genuine reviews that claim to do the job. Check it out at your own risk.

Warning: The extension forces you to pay, disable antivirus, stop other extensions, and create a google plus account for the sake of rating.
