How to Clear Browser History on Android Phones

It’s no mystery that web browsers track many of our internet usage habits. Anyone checking your device can also easily access this “history”. If you’re using Google Chrome on Android, we’ll show you how to clear it.

Your browsing history is a running list of all the websites you have visited. It’s useful when you want to go back to a page you’ve visited before, or if you don’t remember where you saw or read something. However, sometimes, you may not want others to have access to this history. Let’s clear it up!

To get started, open Google Chrome on your Android phone or tablet.

Click the three-dot menu in the upper right corner.

Next, click “History” in the context menu.

If you want to clear a specific entry, you can tap the search icon at the top. Click the “X” next to any entry to delete it.

To delete your browsing history in bulk, click Clear browsing data.

Under the “Basic” tab, you can use the “Time Range” option to choose how far back in data you want to clear. Make sure “Browsing History” is selected, then click “Clear Data.”

The Advanced tab has more options, but they are not necessary for clear browsing history.

It’s really that simple. You can do this anytime to keep your history clear.

Tap three-dot menu icon.

Tap Settings.
