Privacy is a big deal these days, and clearing your entire web browser history is a good place to start. If you want to hide the traces of a birthday present you need to research or a weird site you’ve been to, we’ll show you how.
This guide will remove internet activity, clear cache, cookies, site data and even logins or passwords if you want. You choose what to remove. So, follow our video guide or step-by-step instructions below.
Every website and Google search you visit is saved on your device and Google account. Just like on a computer, this information is easy to find in the browser history. Anyone can look at it. However, it is equally easy to clear any traces of what you do or where you go online.
How to Clear Your Galaxy S9 Browser History
There are several different web browsers available for Android phones. You’re probably using Samsung’s “Internet” app, so we’ll first explain how to clear your history in that browser. Next, we will give you similar instructions to delete Google Chrome as it is the most popular web browser on Android.
This action will instantly clear all your web browsing history, cache, cookies and site data. As you can see from our screenshots above, this will delete your username or login information for your favorite sites or services. This means the browser will still remember (autofill) your Amazon or other site login information.
Autofill and password data will not be deleted unless you select it from the drop-down options. However, if you really want a clean slate, you will have to delete everything. Just think about what you do online, then choose what works best for you and your situation.
How to Delete Google Chrome Browser History
The process of clearing your browser history is relatively the same in any web browser. Look for similar settings whether you’re using Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera or something else. Considering that Chrome is extremely popular, we will also show you how to delete it.
As you’ve noticed from our instructions, Google offers you a few different options here. We really like the option to clear websites or Google searches (or any history) one at a time. That way it doesn’t look like you’re trying to hide anything. Just delete what you need to remove and leave the rest. Or tap for the full action similar to the one shown above.
