Clearing your Safari browsing history on your iPhone is an essential task to maintain your privacy and free up some storage space. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of clearing your Safari history on your iPhone. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Launch the Settings App

To begin, unlock your iPhone and locate the Settings app on your home screen. The Settings app is represented by a gray icon with gears. Tap on it to open the app.

Step 2: Find Safari Settings

Once you are in the Settings app, scroll down until you find Safari. The Safari settings icon features a blue compass-like symbol. Tap on it to access the Safari settings.

Step 3: Access Clear History Option

In the Safari settings menu, scroll down until you see ‘Clear History and Website Data’. This option is located towards the end of the menu. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 4: Confirm Clearing History

A pop-up message will appear, asking for confirmation before clearing your browsing history. This message warns that clearing history will remove data from all devices connected to your iCloud account. If you want to continue, tap on ‘Clear History and Data’.

Step 5: Wait for Clearing Process

Safari will now start clearing your browsing history and data. The time taken for this process depends on the amount of data stored in your browsing history. Please wait patiently until the process completes.


  • To ensure maximum privacy and security, consider enabling private browsing mode in Safari.
  • If you want to selectively remove certain websites from your browsing history, you can do so by tapping on ‘History’ in the Safari settings menu and manually deleting individual entries.
  • If you use multiple devices with the same iCloud account, clearing history on one device will also clear it on all other connected devices.

That’s it! You have successfully cleared your Safari browsing history on your iPhone.

By regularly performing this task, you can maintain your privacy and keep your device running smoothly. Happy browsing!
