In this tutorial, we will explore how to view your Safari browsing history on your iPhone. Whether you want to revisit a website you previously visited or need to clear your browsing history, knowing how to access your Safari history can be quite handy.

Accessing Safari on iPhone

To begin, find the Safari app on your iPhone’s home screen and tap on it. The Safari app icon looks like a compass.

Viewing Your Safari History

Once you have opened the Safari app, you can easily access your browsing history by following these simple steps:

  • Step 1: Tap on the address bar at the top of the screen. This is where you usually enter a website URL or search query.
  • Step 2: When the address bar expands, you will see a clock icon at the top left corner of the screen.

    Tap on it.

  • Step 3: You will now be presented with a list of websites that you have visited recently. The websites are listed in chronological order, with the most recent ones at the top.

You can scroll through this list to find the specific website you are looking for. Each entry in the list will display the website’s title and URL.

Browsing History Options

In addition to viewing your browsing history, Safari offers some useful options that allow you to manage and organize your history effectively:

  • Show All History: If you want to see a more comprehensive view of your browsing history, tap on “Show All History” at the bottom of the list. This will open a new page with a detailed timeline of all websites you have visited.
  • Search History: To quickly find a specific website in your browsing history, you can use the search bar at the top of the history page.

    Simply enter a keyword or website name, and Safari will filter the results accordingly.

  • Clear History: If you want to remove all traces of your browsing history, you can tap on “Clear” at the bottom of the history page. Safari will ask you to confirm your action before permanently deleting your browsing history.

Remember that clearing your browsing history will remove all websites from the list, making it impossible to revisit them directly using the history feature. However, this action does not delete any saved passwords or autofill data.


Now that you know how to access your Safari browsing history on your iPhone, you can easily revisit websites you have previously visited or clear your browsing history as needed. This feature is particularly helpful when you need to find a website but can’t remember its exact URL or want to maintain privacy by removing any traces of your online activity.

By following these simple steps, you can make the most out of Safari’s browsing history feature and enhance your overall web browsing experience on your iPhone.
