How to clear your browsing history

Last updated: 28/5-2024

Browsers such as Chrome and Safari save your browsing history whenever you visit a website. This makes it easier for you to find pages you have previously visited. If you don’t want anyone to see which websites you have visited, you can clear your history.

There are various ways to do this depending on which browser you use and whether you use a computer, smartphone or tablet. Follow the relevant link to learn how to clear your history from the device/browser you use.

Private browsing

Most browsers have a function called private or incognito browsing if you want to visit a website without leaving any trace in your browsing history. This function allows you to visit websites without your browser remembering where you visited.
