Introduction

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t give much thought to the historical data your Mac collects every time you use it. However, all that information can take up a lot of space on your hard drive, and it can also be a privacy concern if you share your computer with others.

How to Clear Browsing History in Safari

Safari is the default web browser for Mac computers, and like all web browsers, it stores a record of the sites you visit. This is known as your “browsing history.” Keeping track of your browsing history can be helpful in many ways. For example, if you want to revisit a website later, you can use your browsing history to find it again. However, there are also some potential drawbacks to keeping a record of your browsing history. For example, it can take up space on your computer, and if other people have access to your computer, they may be able to see which websites you have visited.

If you would like to clear your browsing history in Safari, follow the instructions below:

1. Open Safari.
2. Click on the “History” menu at the top of the screen.
3. Select “Clear History.”
4. In the pop-up window that appears, select how far back you would like to clear your browsing history. The options are “the last hour,” “today,” “yesterday,” or “all history.”
5. Click on the “Clear History” button.
6. Your browsing history will now be cleared!
