How to Turn Off Address Bar Search Predictions In Every Browser

Posted by on in Internet Search
  • Hits: 792

Google’s search predictions that pop up in the URL bar of modern browsers are often useful, but they’re just as often an annoyance. If you’d prefer to ditch them altogether, it’s really easy to do and it just depends on which browser you’re using.


Disable Search Prediction In Desktop Chrome


  1. Click the hamburger menu button in the upper right.
  2. Click Settings > Show Advanced Settings.
  3. Scroll down to Privacy and uncheck


“Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLSs typed in the address bar.” Note: you can also turn it off on the Google site itself by heading to your Search Settings page and selecting the “Never show Instant results.”

Disable Search Prediction in Mobile Chrome


  1. Tap the Chrome menu button, which is either three dots or a two line tab.
  2. Tap Settings > Privacy.
  3. Uncheck the box marked Search and URL suggestions.


Disable Search Prediction in Firefox


  1. Click Firefox > Preferences head to the Search section.
  2. Uncheck the box marked “Show search suggests in location bar results.”


Disable Search Prediction in Mobile Safari


  1. Head to Settings > Safari.
  2. Scroll down to the Search section and uncheck the box marked “Search Engine Suggestions.


Disable Search Prediction in Desktop Safari


  1. Click Safari > Preferences and head to the Search tab.
  2. Uncheck the box marked “Include search engine suggestions.”


That’s it, you will no longer see suggested words from the search engine of your choice nor will your browser send those partial searches as you type them.
