Delete Browsing History, Protect Privacy

 


Visitors: 306

Have you detected the danger of remaining your browsing history in your browse?

The web browsing history refers to the list of web pages a user has visited recently and associated data such as page title and time of visit which is recorded by web browser software as standard for a certain period of time. Web browser software does this in order to provide the user with a Back button and/or a History list, to go back to pages they have visited previously, rather than relying on the user to remember where they have been on the web.

But in addition to the web browser software itself, third-party services can also record a user's web browsing history completely or partially.

In Google web history, the clicks of registered users are recorded and stored in individual user histories, which are browsable and searchable by that user. Google records the history for its own internal purposes, such as advertising click tracking. If the user installs the Google toolbar, all pages that the user visits while logged in to Google on that computer may be recorded. A potential benefit to the user is that they can review - and search through - all of their web browsing history on any computer, but this can have privacy implications.

If you are using Google Chrome, it’s really necessary for you to delete and clear your browsing data. Actually, deleting your browsing data in Google Chrome is easy and simple. You just need to do few steps.

First, click the wrench icon on the toolbar, then select Tool, then select Clear browsing data, then check the “Clear browsing history” box in the appeared dialog. You can use the menu at the top to select the amount of data you want to delete. If you choose “beginning of time”, you will clear your entire browsing history. Lastly click Clear browsing data.

Finally, you cleared the web address, the cached text of pages, the snapshots, and any IP addresses pref-etched from pages you have visited.

In fact, these steps are not enough to completely clear your browsing history and your privacy information. If we want to completely and automatically clear browser history in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, MSN Explorer, Maxthon (MyIE2), Opera, Netscape, Mozilla, AOL Explorer (AOL browser), we can use a free tool to help me such as Acebyte Utilities free. In addition we can use it to modify and clear the registry errors, to optimize our computer with one click. It saves a lot of time for us. Especially, when you are using several web browsers to surf internet, you can find and use a tool to help you clear browsing data in one click.
