How to clear your browsers cache to keep your browsing private
As we all know, the browser history saves all the pages we have ever visited. It does so indefinitely, so you can find a way to get back to your last session if you need it. This information can get you in trouble with people in your environment and even with the authorities.
What can you do to keep your history hidden? Clear the browser cache. And also, do it regularly. Either that, or make sure no history information is saved. Also, deleting the cache will also recover some space on your hard drive. In this article we are going to show you how to do it.
Open the program and, in the navigation bar, write the codechrome://settings/clearBrowserData. This will take you directly to the page and the dialogue in which you can clean up your entire history. Not only your browsing history, but also your download history, cookies, cached images and files, saved passwords and much more. You can even choose the time span that you are going to clean, which goes from the last hour to “the origin of time”.
Chrome does not give you the option to avoid saving history . It stores it over time until the user clears it. What’s more, if you’ve used your Google account with your browser, it’s very likely that it’s synced to Google My Activity. If you really want to leave the history, go to this link .
Once there, click on the menu button and there select “Controls of the activity of your account” . In the screen that appears, deselect the option “Include the browsing history of Chrome and the activity you perform on websites and applications that use Google services,” in addition to delete any activity synchronized with the service.
In the main menu of Opera, type opera://settings and go to the section “Privacy and Security” . You’ll see a button labeled “Clear browsing data” that has the same options as Chrome, since Opera is built on the same engine that is used in the Chromium Project.
Go to the menu button and select “Settings”. In the menu that appears, look for the section “Delete Scan data” , where you will see a button labeled “Choose what to delete”. There you can delete your browsing history, downloads, cookies, cached data and saved passwords.
If you click on “Show more” you will see even more options to delete our history.Here you can also activate an option to erase the history every time you close the browser.
To clear your Firefox history, go to the menu at the top right of the screen. There select “History”. In the sidebar that will open, select the “Clear recent history”option. If you want something more protection, after doing this you can go to the browser settings and, in the section “Privacy”, indicate that Firefox does not remember the history.
