American network of communities - Reddit, is a great platform for people to dive into their interests, hobbies, and passions, giving users an authentic human connection.
But, there are times when after a while of using Reddit, the search history becomes a bit too crowded with all of those searches you typed in. For example, you were searching for vacation places in Egypt and now Reddit displays you numerous notifications about Egypt that just keep coming and won't go away.
