How do I clear browsing history on my Samsung phone?

Answered by Lewis Quinn

To clear the browsing on your Samsung phone, follow these steps:

1. Open the Chrome browser on your phone. Look for the app icon that resembles a blue circle with a white center and a red, yellow, and green dot.

2. Once you have opened Chrome, tap on the three vertical dots located in the top-right corner of the screen. This will open a menu with various options.

3. From the menu, tap on “Settings.” It should be towards the bottom of the list.

4. In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find the “Privacy and security” section. Tap on it to expand the options.

5. Among the options listed under “Privacy and security,” you will find “Clear browsing data.” Tap on it to proceed.

6. Here, you will see a list of different types of data that you can clear. These include browsing history, cookies and site data, cached images and files, and more.

7. Check the box next to “Browsing history” to ensure that your browsing history will be cleared. If you want to clear other types of data as well, you can check those boxes too.

8. If you want to clear the browsing history for a specific time period, tap on the drop-down menu labeled “Time range.” You can choose options like “Last hour,” “Last 24 hours,” “Last 7 days,” or “All time.” Select the desired time range.

9. Once you have selected the options you want, tap on the “Clear data” button at the bottom of the screen.

10. A confirmation pop-up will appear, asking if you want to proceed with clearing the data. Tap on “Clear” to confirm and start the process.

After you tap on “Clear,” the selected browsing history and other data will be deleted from your Samsung phone. It may take a few moments for the process to complete, depending on the amount of data being cleared.

It's worth noting that clearing your browsing history can improve your privacy and security, as it removes traces of your online activities. However, keep in mind that clearing your browsing history will also remove any saved passwords or autofill data associated with websites you visit.

That's it! You have successfully cleared your browsing history on your Samsung phone using the Chrome browser.
