    I am not sure what 'form data' is. I saw this in 'clear form data' in security.
    Is this the words which I typed in a search engine?

    Are you sure it said foam and not form? Can you find it again and take a screenshot?

    Ok. Then, yes. It should be anything that it's saved for you. Name, address, email addresses, phone numbers. I THINK it will delete "autofill" stuff that you've typed in search, but I believe that is separate from Google remembering things you've searched for, if that makes sense.

    You may have to go into your Google Search settings to clear search history if you're talking about Google's autfill data, rather than the autofill data that the phone stores for you.
