Do you want to clear your browser history on Android? Whether you want to maintain your privacy or simply want to free up some storage space, clearing your browsing history is a good idea. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of clearing your browser history on Android devices.

Clearing Browser History on Android

If you are using the Google Chrome browser on your Android device, follow these simple steps to clear your browsing history:

Step 1: Open Chrome Settings

To get started, open your Chrome browser and tap on the three dots located at the top right corner of the screen. This will open a drop-down menu.

Note: If you are using a different browser on your Android device, the steps may vary slightly. However, most browsers have similar options for clearing browsing history.

Step 2: Access History Settings

In the drop-down menu, scroll down and tap on “History.” This will take you to the History page where you can view all previously visited websites.

Step 3: Clear Browsing Data

To clear your browsing history, tap on “Clear browsing data” at the top of the screen. This will open a new window with various options for clearing different types of data.

Step 4: Select Browsing History

In the Clear Browsing Data window, make sure “Browsing history” is selected. You can also select additional items such as cached images and files or cookies if desired.

Step 5: Choose Time Range

Beneath the selected items, you will see an option to choose how far back in time you want to clear your browsing data. You can select “Last hour,” “Last 24 hours,” “Last 7 days,” or “All time” depending on your preference.

Step 6: Clear Data

Once you have selected the desired options, tap on the “Clear data” button at the bottom of the screen. A confirmation message will appear, asking if you want to clear your browsing data.

Note: Clearing your browsing history will also sign you out of any websites you are currently logged into.

Step 7: Confirm Clearing

To proceed with clearing your browsing history, tap on the “Clear” button in the confirmation message. The process may take a few moments depending on the amount of data to be cleared.


Congratulations! You have successfully cleared your browser history on Android.
