That is why in this article we are going to show you how you can eliminate it at the time of entering the web and thus leaving the equipment as new and avoiding theft of data or other uncomfortable situations.

Steps to delete all or part of the Google browsing history on your Android mobile

There are two main methods with which we can get rid of the information from our Internet browsing on our phones. So now we are going to see each of these in depth, For both procedures we will use the default Android browser, Google Chrome, as an example.

But it is relevant that you know that they are generic methods and that can be used with anyone else who uses your Google accounts.

Generally, the following options will be enabled:

  • The first one is the browsing history with all the sites in which we have navigated in the period selected above.
  • The second is cookies, that it is other information such as open sessions in networks or emails.
  • By last, cache files and images, which are files that are temporarily stored to facilitate that the next time we visit a site, it opens faster than the first time.

It is important to note that the longer the amount of time that we select to delete the files, the greater the space that we are going to clear with this action.

  • Once we have evaluated and chosen the parameters according to our need, we will click on the button “Delete data”, which is in the lower right corner.

  • The first extra on this menu is saved passwords, which tells us how many passwords of different email accounts, bank accounts, wallets, social networks among others, we have saved in our registry, this should only be activated if you want them to be deleted.
  • The second is form autocomplete data, This is information that we always put when we register on a new site, that is, data such as bank accounts, addresses, company name, among other things.
  • Finally there is the configuration that we modify on certain pages.
  • To finish again, click on “Delete data” and we wait for the action to be executed.

This setting is recommended when you need to do a deeper cleaning. of your device, or when you are going to give it to a new owner and you don’t want it to have your data, or simply when you want to improve its performance and clear space.

Delete from My Activity

Even having deleted our browser history, there is always certain information that is stored in Google’s databases, and If what we want is to completely get rid of everything and pretend we have never known the Internet, then what we have to do is enter MyActivity from Google.

  • To access all your Google Internet browsing activity you just have to write MyActivity in the search engine and select the first option, or place this link directly in the address bar https://myactivity.google.com.

  • The first option we will see will be the date and as in the previous one a menu will appear to select if it is the information of “Today” or all information from “Always” the one we want to delete.

  • But also, below we see two calendar options, a start and an end of the more specific dates to delete, this in case we need something concrete so that we don’t have to delete everything.

  • For the last option we find the one where we can select from all the google services, the information we want to delete.
