If you visit a website by accident or you do not want to save your browsing history in Google Chrome you can quickly delete it from your Android phone or from your desktop, and here’s how to delete your Google Chrome browser history.
Using your Android smartphone, open the Google Chrome browser and make sure you open at least one tab, then click the 3-point menu icon in the top right corner and select the record option.
From there, select the Clear Browsing Data text at the top of the screen, and you’ll be taken to a new window that will help you not only delete your browsing history but also store cookies, cached images, and more.
First, choose a date range you’d like to delete, and you can choose between the last hour, last 24 hours, last 7 days, last 4 weeks, and all times, and suggest removing what you need for Chrome to continue recommending future websites you’ve visited in the past.
Select the item boxes you want to delete, and instead you can click the tab and then Advanced to find additional data that can be removed from your Google Account. When you’re ready, select the “Clear data” button at the bottom of the screen to permanently delete your browser history.
