Despite the fact that you can do so many things and explore so many places right from your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus, the smartphone remembers everything. From the short-term cache memory to the long-term history of your online navigation, little traces of your online activity are stored everywhere on the device.
But the good thing is that you can delete all that if you know where to look for and what to look for. Let’s take the example of your Internet browser. You are probably using the Google Chrome app, just like you’re using the Chrome browser on your PC. If that’s the case, you can easily delete Google Chrome history on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus by following these simple steps:
- Launch the internet browser;
- Look at the top of the screen, in the right corner, for a special menu with a 3-dot icon;
- Tap on that icon and you will see a context menu popping up on the screen;
- Identify the History option from that menu and tap on it;
- In the newly opened window, look for a button that says “Clear Browsing Data” – somewhere towards the bottom of the screen;
- When you tap on it, you will see a new window with some extra options regarding the types of data you want to erase;
- Select the desired fields and proceed to delete Google Chrome history.
As you’ve probably noticed, the last step is extremely useful as it lets you pick even individual websites that you’d like to remove from the search history. That way, it won’t be obvious that you intentionally removed the entire history, if someone decides to check on you. So, your navigation traces can remain in place, but what you don’t want to appear in the history overview won’t appear. How cool is that?
