iPhone, Tutorials

Are you tired of seeing the same websites pop up every time you open a new tab on your iPhone? We’ve got you covered!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of deleting frequently visited websites on your iPhone. Let’s get started.

Step 1: Open Safari

To begin, unlock your iPhone and locate the Safari app on your home screen. It’s represented by a compass-like icon with blue and white colors. Tap on it to open Safari.

Step 2: Access Favorites

Once Safari is open, you will be presented with the main browser window. At the bottom of the screen, find and tap on the “Bookmarks” icon represented by an open book. This will take you to your bookmarks and favorites.

Step 3: Clear Frequently Visited Websites

In the Bookmarks view, you will notice multiple tabs at the top of the screen. Swipe left or right until you see “Frequently Visited.” Tap on it to access your frequently visited websites.

Now, to delete a frequently visited website, simply tap and hold on its thumbnail until a menu appears. From the options provided, select “Delete.” Repeat this process for any other frequently visited websites that you want to remove.


If there are no frequently visited websites displayed in this section, it means that Safari hasn’t gathered enough data yet or it has been cleared recently.

Step 4: Confirm Deletion

After tapping “Delete,” a confirmation prompt will appear asking if you want to remove the website from your frequently visited list. To proceed with deletion, tap “Delete” again.

Step 5: Verify Deletion

To verify that a website has been successfully deleted from the frequently visited list, return to the Safari browser’s main screen. Open a new tab, and you should no longer see the deleted website among your frequently visited sites.

Additional Tips

If you want to clear all frequently visited websites at once, you can do so by tapping on the “Clear” button located at the bottom right corner of the “Frequently Visited” section.

Keep in mind that Safari will begin to populate the frequently visited section with new websites based on your browsing habits. So if you visit a particular site often, it may reappear in this section over time.

You can also prevent specific websites from appearing as frequently visited by using private browsing mode. To enable private browsing, tap on the “Tabs” icon at the bottom right corner of Safari and select “Private.” This will prevent any websites you visit in private mode from being added to your frequently visited list.


By following these simple steps, you can easily delete frequently visited websites on your iPhone’s Safari browser. Keeping your browsing experience clutter-free and tailored to your preferences has never been easier!

We hope this tutorial has been helpful to you. Happy browsing!
