How to Remove 'Top Hits' From Mobile Safari in iOS 7 Through iOS 9 With a Jailbreak
When you dislike the "Top Hits" feature of Mobile Safari, you have the option of enabling Private Browsing mode to disable it, but that also means losing other perks of the Web browser, such as cookies, history, and other data that can be useful in a daily Web browsing experience.
Fortunately, if you want to keep yourself out of Private Browsing, but are still interested in removing the Top Hits feature from Mobile Safari, then a new free jailbreak tweak called DisableTopHits
by iOS developer Chikuwa is now available that, as shown above, removes the Top Hits feature from Web search suggestions.
Suggested Web sites will still appear, but without Top Hits, you won't have something tracking you and telling you what you visit the most anymore, which may be a little more preferred in terms of privacy.
DisableTopHits doesn't have any options to configure, and it's available for iOS 7, iOS 8, and iOS 9 devices. The tweak is free of cost right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository for jailbroken devices only.
