How To View and Clear Browsing History On Chrome for Mobile

The Chrome for mobile release has been well-received by iOS and Android users alike, though for Android, Chrome is only available on devices with Android 4.0 and up, like the new Samsung Galaxy S3 or the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

As with most mobile and desktop browsers, Chrome allows you to delete your browsing history from within its settings. You can also view your browsing history, but it’s not a feature you can access from the menu.

Here’s how to view and clear your browsing history in Chrome for mobile:

View browsing history
To view browsing history in Chrome, type, “chrome:history” in the omnibox (address bar). This also works for the desktop version of Chrome. The browsing history will appear with the most recent history at the top. Tapping on the drop-down icon, at the right of each item, will give you the option to remove it from history, or view more history for that particular site.

You can remove multiple items from the history by tapping at the left of the item, then tapping on Remove selected items. If you’d rather clear everything, you can do so by clicking on the Clear all browsing data option.

Clear browsing history
If you only want to delete browsing history, follow these steps:
Chrome for Android users, go to Menu > Settings > Advanced > Privacy, then tap on Clear browsing data. You’ll be presented with a list of data types to clear. Check the boxes next to each item you want to clear, then tap the Clear button.

Chrome for iOS users, go to Menu > Settings, then tap on Clear browsing data. Choose the data types you want to clear, then tap Clear.
