Delete the Galaxy Note 8 and Note 9 browsing history – Specific instructions for Google Chrome
We’ve decided to create a different section of this tutorial, specifically for the Chrome browser, because it is one of the most popular choices among the Note 8 and Note 9 users. You will see, the steps are relatively the same, in the sense that you still need to:
- Launch the Google Chrome browser;
- Access its menu from the three-dot icon;
- Select History;
- Select Clear Browsing Data;
- Select the type of data you want to delete;
- Hit the Delete button.
One thing you’ll notice and that you will probably get excited about, is that aside from wiping out general categories of data, you have some more detailed controls. In Chrome, as opposed to other browsers, you can choose to remove only particular websites from your browsing history.
You can see how this helps when you want to remove some sensitive information without leaving the impression that you have erased your tracks. Whoever will come and check your internet browser history on Note 9 and Note 8, won’t be able to tell that you’ve cleaned up some things!
