Google Chrome

Open the browser and click on Settings > Show advanced settings > Clear browsing data (Shortcut: In the search box type “chrome://settings/clearBrowserData” without the quotation marks). It takes you to the dialogue box to delete not only the history of your browsing but also your download history (it won’t delete the actual downloaded files), all your cookies, cached images and files (that could assist help load pages more quickly when you revisit), saved passwords and more. Better still, you can delete only the info from the last hour, day, week, month, or all of it to “the beginning of time.”

If you have a working Google account, you can sign into it with Chrome, and your history is likely being synced to Google My Activity. While it should be secured behind your Google account (use a password manager and two-factor authentication for the best protection), if you really want to you get rid of history, go here, select the hamburger/three-dot menu up top > Activity Controls to turn off the inclusion of Chrome browser activity (from desktops and handhelds), as well as delete any activity synced with the service.

Mozilla Firefox

You can access that from the hamburger menu (at upper right) and head straight to History. All your visited sites and a Clear Recent History option (Shortcut: Hold the hit Ctrl+Shift+Del for the same effect). If you select Options in that sidebar, you can go into preference for either remember history, never remember, or do some custom settings, such as always go into private browsing mode, or never store history or cookies, or to clear the history when closing Firefox.

Check the Sync tab while you’re in here—if you’ve signed on with a Mozilla Firefox account—your history (plus bookmarks, tabs, passwords, and preferences) may be synced with your other PCs and devices using Firefox, also on smartphones.
