Whenever I try to type plus.google.com into Safari, it starts auto-completing the URL to plus.url.google.com. I've tried removing all my of vists to this domain from my history hoping that plus.google.com would be what it auto-completes with, but that doesn't seem to help.

How do I get rid of plus.url.google.com and have Safari auto-complete to plus.google.com?


One simple way is to use a keyboard shortcut to remove the incorrect auto entry.

Highlight the incorrect entry like the:


and pres fn+shift+delete


There are three main sources for Safari's auto-complete:

  • History
  • Bookmarks
  • iCloud Tabs

Clearing the URL from your history is not enough — make sure that plus.url.google.com does not appear in any of your bookmarks or any iCloud tab. Once a URL does not appear any of these places, relaunch Safari.
