Clear deleted sharepoint groups from Frequent Sites and Suggested Sites
Please remove deleted sharepoint sites from Frequent Sites and Suggested Sites if they no longer exist. It confuses staff.
Microsoft needs to give the ability to delete the tiles off the main sharepoint site. I have tiles from sites that have been deleted in the admin panel but still show up. My users keep asking for permissions to these sites. It is so annoying.
This will be good idea to remove the deleted site from Frequent,Followed site.

I have been following this for almost 2 year but I think I found a potential solution:
First: frequent site is somehow tied to Office Graph and Delve. So you need to disable Office graph in SharePoint admin center -> Setting, select "Don't allow access to Office Graph."
Then open your Delve, go to setting -> Feature setting, disable document tracking.
Finally, go to SharePoint main page (where the frequent site is listed), go to Site settings -> Search -> Search and offline availability. click "Reindex site" to trigger a site crawl.
Log out and wait for 1 hour, log back in, and Voila!! frequent site is empty.
I have tried on my account and it works.

It's just insane that my users have to stare at a suggested site tile for a deleted site. Frankly this makes site administrators look like complete idiots.
I was looking for a sollution to remove a site, of a deleted O365 group, from Suggest Sites but this stays a problem I see.
So please MS give us a solution please.

Has there been any announcement of a resolution for this?
While it is possible to self-manage Followed sites, Frequent/Recent/Suggested sites cannot be managed. Additionally, Followed sites are presented with an inconsistent user experience across apps in Office 365. For instance, you can only Stop Following a site by navigating to SharePoint Home and clicking the “star” in the site banner; it is not possible to Stop Following sites displayed in OneDrive as they are rendered without “stars”.
from an admin's point of view I agree. com on microsoft

It also confuses administrators.
