How to Use an Internet Web Browser : How to View & Delete Browsing History on Safari


Hello. My name is Louis Estrada and I’m a
software developer. In this video, I’ll show you how to view and delete browsing history
on Safari. Safari is a registered trademark of Apple Incorporated, a company to which
I have no affiliation. To view your browsing history, click on the History tab. You can
see the pages that you have visited by day or choose the Show All History option. Now,
you can get a full page of information about sites you have visited every day. You can
delete history one element at a time. For example, select any of the visited sites and
press Delete on your keyboard. You can also delete the entire browsing history for a full
day by doing the same. If you want to delete the entire history, select Delete History
under the History tab. When you view the history again, notice everything is gone. Keep in
mind that this hasn’t deleted your cookies or user name and passwords. To clear this,
click on the Edit tab, Preferences, AutoFill and press on the Edit button for the user
names and passwords. There’s a list of all websites that Safari holds passwords for.
Delete one by one or delete them all, then press Accept. Now go to the Security tab and
press the Show Cookies button. Again, you can delete cookie by cookie, which can take
a lot of time, or simply delete all. Finally, click on Done. Since we are already in the
Preferences menu, click on the General tab. Here, you can choose how often Safari should
delete elements from your history. For example, every day, week, month or year. If you select
Manually, then Safari will never delete your history elements and you will have to do it
yourself every once in a while. If in case you decide that you do not want to store any
kind of history on your Safari browser, go to the Edit tab and select Private Browsing.
This way, visited web pages are not added to the history. There’s no track of downloaded
fills, AutoFill for forms is disabled and your search terms are deleted as well. I’m
Luis Estrada and I’ve just shown you how to use your web browser.
