Facetime is a popular video calling app for Mac users, allowing them to connect with friends, family, and colleagues easily. However, over time, your Facetime history can accumulate and take up unnecessary storage space on your Mac.

Clearing your Facetime history not only frees up storage but also helps maintain your privacy. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to clear Facetime history on Mac.

Step 1: Open Facetime on your Mac

To begin, locate the Facetime app on your Mac. You can find it in the Applications folder or use Spotlight Search (Cmd + Space) to search for “Facetime.”

Step 2: Access Preferences

Once you have opened the Facetime app, click on “Facetime” from the menu bar at the top of the screen. A drop-down menu will appear; select “Preferences” from the list.

Step 3: View Call History

In the Preferences window that appears, switch to the “Calls” tab. Here you will be able to see a list of all your recent Facetime calls.

Step 4: Remove Individual Calls

If you want to remove specific calls from your history, locate the call you wish to delete and right-click on it. A contextual menu will appear; select “Remove from Recents” to remove that particular call from your history.

Step 5: Clear All Call History

If you want to clear all your call history at once, click on the “Remove All” button located at the bottom left corner of the Preferences window. A confirmation dialog box will appear asking if you want to remove all call history; click “Remove” to proceed.

Step 6: Confirm Clearing of Call History

After clicking “Remove,” Facetime will remove all your call history, and a confirmation message will be displayed to confirm the action. Click “OK” to close the message.

Step 7: Verify Call History

To ensure that your Facetime history has been successfully cleared, go back to the Facetime app and click on “Facetime” in the menu bar again. From the drop-down menu, select “Preferences” and switch to the “Calls” tab. You should see an empty call history.


Congratulations! You have successfully cleared your Facetime history on your Mac.

By following these simple steps, you can keep your Facetime app clean and maintain your privacy. Remember to periodically clear your call history to prevent it from accumulating unnecessarily.

With these straightforward instructions, you can easily manage your Facetime call history on Mac and enjoy a clutter-free experience. Happy video calling!
