    Can I erase the search bar on my phone? I don't see a setting for it anywhere.

    In what way?

    Do you mean clear the text in it? Just touch the 'x' on the right.

    Do you mean remove the bar from the interface? In that case, no.

    I don't see that in the settings.

    What works for me is to go to Settings>Safari>Search Engine, change to whatever the other search engine is. (I use google so I switch it to yahoo)

    Then I tap Clear History and switch the Search Engine back to google

    just tried that and all the search suggestions are there. I'm worried someone playing with my phone will stumble upon these searches.
