Using the browser Chrome on Android it is already very widespread. This is because Google provides it automatically in many terminals and, in addition, the possibility of synchronizing it with the one used on the PC or Mac is attractive. Well, we show you how to delete your browsing history in this one.
Why would you want to do this? Well, there may be several main reasons, the first is to “download” the weight of the application so that it runs more easily. There won’t be much to be gained, but something is something. But, perhaps the most attractive possibility is to avoid that if the corresponding terminal is reviewed by third parties, it is possible to know which web pages have been accessed.
The steps to follow To be able to eliminate the browsing history in Chrome at a stroke, they are the following, which, as you can see, are not complicated at all and, in addition, do not pose any danger to the operation of the device (or the application, it must be said):
- While inside the Chrome browser, click on the button Menu
- Now select the option Record
- On the screen that appears, you can delete the pages that have been accessed one by one (by clicking on the crosses on the right) or, if you want to delete all of them, simply select Clear all browsing data at the bottom of the screen.
- The following offers the possibility of deleting the browser cache, passwords and cookies. This is best not to remove it, but if you want to do a total cleaning it is possible to do so. Once this is chosen, the button is pressed Delete and wait for the process to finish.
Options to use so that no trace remains
If you want to navigate without leaving any trace in the terminal, and thus go unnoticed by the eyes of third parties, it is best to use the incognito tabs, which are precisely for this. To open one, you just have to press the Menu within Chrome and then select New incognito tab. With this there will no longer be any problem before prying eyes.
Obviously there are additional options provided by external applications, such as, for example, Lock (App Lock), this apart from protecting the privacy of browsing, offers added security against spies who may try to access the terminal. It is free and can be downloaded from this link from Google Play.
