Google’s new Nexus 6P has many different security measures. Android 6.0 permission checks and more from a fingerprint scanner. However, security and privacy are still on the minds of many users. Another important issue is browser history and today we will explain how to delete or remove Nexus 6P browser history.
In fact, browser history or form data is something that many users of all smartphones often ask us. There are many reasons a user might want to delete their internet browser or search history on a smartphone, everyone has their own reasons and below are a few steps to do exactly that.
Fortunately, Google Chrome is the only browser on the Nexus 6P, so the process is very quick and easy. Some phones have multiple browsers, but Google’s newest browser does not. As a result, we have a simple set of instructions that will quickly show users their browsing habits and how to hide their tracks.
Android devices record almost everything we do. Google searches, web browsing and more from Google Maps navigation. It is useful when we need it, but also something that can be removed, turned off or deleted from the history. In particular, the browser that records every site we visit. This is what we want to remove and many users have emailed us.
It only takes a minute instead of everything, and even better – you can even clear individual calls – so it doesn’t look like you’re hiding your tracks.
Users may want to do this so that children can’t see what you’re looking for due to a birthday present, Valentine’s Day ideas, general privacy concerns, or many other reasons that we can’t find. To each their own.
Being a Google Nexus 6P means there’s only one easy area with Google Chrome and all the history you need to remove. Below are some screenshots of what owners will look for when they delete or remove their browser history.
To get started, open Google Chrome. This is the web browser. Once you open it, look up and tap the three dots “” in the top right. This will open a drop-down menu where you scroll down and select “”.
In the History tab, users will be able to access the list of all websites visited so far using Google Chrome on the Nexus 6P. Next, users just have to tap the “clear browser data” button at the bottom and choose what information they want to remove as shown in the screenshots below.
You will have a similar checkbox option with our screenshots and users will have control over what gets deleted or what stays or you can delete everything. Another great benefit of Google Chrome is that you can remove individual site visits or searches, rather than all or nothing like Samsung’s browsers, so you don’t appear to be hiding your tracks. Simply press x to clear each search or visit you want removed.
This is where Google helps us with everyday things or forms, so users should be careful not to clear “Autofill data”. Such as email addresses, logins or passwords that users choose to be saved by Google Chrome. So you will have to re-login to everything. Nobody wants to do this. Unless there are sites you don’t want people to know you’re signed in to.
That’s it, clear it all up or clarify exactly what you want and we’re done. However, there is another method that we have added below to avoid all this.
If users don’t want to worry about clearing their history, we can take steps so that it is never saved on startup. This is a feature called Incognito Mode in many browsers (including Chrome). While in the browser, hit the same menu button at the top and create a . This ensures that Google Chrome does not remember or save any history, passwords, logins or sites visited during the session. This is the best way to do things and is something many users should consider if privacy is a concern.
Fortunately as Android, there are multiple browsers that do this all the time instead of opening a private tab in the Google Play Store. Dolphin Zero it’s a good one, or Opera has a browser-wide “privacy mode” that can be activated if you want. Basically replacing Google Chrome with something a little more specific. Everyone has a choice. Use Chrome or go to Play Store and choose from many different browsers to visit the web.
It is worth noting that these steps mentioned above are similar for almost all Android smartphones and tablets, as well as most browsers in the Play Store. Clear this browsing data or stop it from being saved from the beginning.
