Do you often leave your friends using your smartphone to surf on the Web? Don’t want they know the list of sites you’ve visited? No problem, you only have to delete the history on your mobile! If you don’t know how to do it, let’s read the simple steps that I’m going to tell you in this article!
Just like the PC, even Android and iPhone smartphones allow you to delete the list of websites visited in recent weeks.
Let’s start this guide focuses on how to clear history on your Android smartphone. If you’re using a terminal equipped with the operating system of the green robot and you want to delete the list of visited sites with the default browser, all you have to do is to start the latter, press the Menu button on the phone and select More> Settings from the menu that appears. In the screen that opens, select the Delete history and presses the OK button to complete the operation.
If you use Chrome, you can delete the web browsing history by simply pressing the Menu button (the icon with the three horizontal lines placed in the upper right corner) and selecting Settings from the menu that appears. In the screen that opens, select the item from the Privacy section and click on the Clear History button (or Clear browsing data).
Firefox for Android also provides a function to delete the list of sites you have visited on your smartphone. Just go to the main menu of the app and select items More> Settings from the menu that appears. In the screen that opens, press on the item Clear Private Data , select History browsing and downloading data and press the Delete button.
If you want to clear the history on your iPhone, all you have to do is going on iOS Settings, select Safari from the menu that pops up and pressing the Clear History button twice in a row.
The above procedure concerns about Safari, the default browser for iOS. If you do not use it and prefer to surf the Web with your iPhone using Chrome, the procedure to clear the history is the same view for android: press the Menu button of the app (top right) and select the Settings item from the menu that appears. In the screen that opens, select the item from the Privacy section and click on the Clear History button to complete the operation.
