How to Clear Browsing History and Cache in Chrome, Yandex, Opera, Firefox, Edge ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ”ฅ๐ŸŒ

Hello everybody! In this video, you will see how to clear your
browsing history, as well as cache and cookies, saved logins and passwords in Google Chrome,
Yandex Browser, Opera, Mozilla Firefox and Edge. We will have a closer look at setting up your
browser and Google account so that your browsing history is not saved there. By default, every browser saves the user’s
browsing history and information on all tabs that were opened. In any browser, the History option can be
found in the settings menu. Sometimes it is called Log or Journal. The easy way to view browsing history is to
press the key sequence Ctrl + H. Google Chrome
Yandex Browser Opera
Mozilla Firefox and Edge You can visit our channel and watch a video
about hotkeys in popular browsers – Google Chrome, Yandex, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Microsoft
Edge. You will find the link in the description:
I think you also know that by default every browser saves cookies and cache. Cookies are small files that keep settings
for websites which you visited. Their most popular function is saving passwords
so that users don’t have to enter the login and password every time they visit a website. Cookies also remember when users follow links
from advertising banners. Later this information saved to cookies can
influence on what banners are shown to this or another user. They are also used to track browsing history. This is how they look in a browser. For example, in Chrome: Settings / Privacy
and security / Content settings / Cookies Or in Yandex: Settings / Show advanced settings
/ Privacy / Content settings Cookies are usually found in the browser menu:
Privacy and security, or privacy, or Security and so on. What is cache? It can be found in the browser. It saves every visited webpage, so if you
go there again, the browser doesn’t have to load it from the server. Here is how cache looks like in Google Chrome:
chrome://cache/ It looks similarly in other browsers. Now, to clear browsing and downloads history,
browser cache and cookies, as well as synchronized passwords and autofill data in any browser:
 press the key sequence Ctrl + Shift + Delete. It works with all popular browsers. In the description, you will find links to
our videos about top free browsers and a review of alternative browsers:  in the opening window, select what you
want to clear  Most browsers also allow you to choose
the period for which you want to clear data: the last hour, today, all history and so on.  Choose your option and click on “Clear
browsing data” As a result, the information will be deleted
and no longer available to other users. I’d like to say a couple of words about
synchronization or user’s account. In any of the top browsers, every user can
have their own profile. It includes all browser settings — extensions,
passwords, bookmarks, browsing history etc. Why am I talking about it? If you care about privacy of data on the web
resources you visit, browsing history, bookmarks or registration data, you can use the browser
after logging in with your details. When you finish work, you log out and clear
browsing history as I’ve just shown. After you log in again, the browsing history
will be synchronized again from the online server. It doesn’t matter what computer you are
using. You can create a user profile in the browser’s
settings menu. Such menu can be found under one of the names:
Users, Synchronization or Account. To sign up, you only need your email address
and password. In the same way, you can clear browsing and
downloads history, browser cache and cookies, as well as synchronized passwords and autofill
data in any browser from your smartphone. You can clean browsing history of a mobile
version of browser from the menu Settings / History / Clean history or Settings / Clean
browsing history. This menu is not too difficult to find, quite
often you can guess its location. If you care about your privacy and remaining
anonymous all the time you’re using the Internet, you can achieve it by changing some
settings in your browser or online account. I will show it with the example of Google
Chrome, as I use it most often. However, you can find similar settings in
your browser. • First of all, we are interested in Privacy
and Security. • Enable the option “Send a “Do Not Track”
request with your browsing traffic” • After that, go to Content settings / Cookies
• and disable the option “Allow sites to save and read cookie data”;
enable “Keep local data only until you quit your browser” and “Block third-party cookies”
• Also, turn on “Ask before accessing” function for: Location, Camera, Microphone,
Notifications • Leave all other options at their default
settings. • Now let’s go to the “Passwords and
forms” menu • and disable “Autofill settings”
• as well as the opportunity to save passwords for websites. Now you will have to enter them on your own
every time, but no one else will be able to sign in your accounts with login and password
autofill. You can also make similar settings for the
browser in your smartphone. Once again, the menu may look different in
other browsers, but the point is the same – to prevent the browser from automatically
remembering your data, such as browsing history, cookies, cache, passwords and so on. Every time you use Chrome on your computer
or smartphone to search for something, Google tracks your actions to personalize search
results. The same happens when you use other apps by
Google, such as Google Maps or Google Now. To stop Google from tracking your online activities:
• Go to your Google account • In the section “Personal info and privacy”
select “Manage your Google activity”. • Then go to Activity Controls. • There you can see all types of data that
Google monitors. • To disable saving web and app activity,
just click on the symbol on the right. If that’s not enough for you and you want
to clean the entire history of your online activity, do the following:
• To begin with, select “Manage Activity” • You will be redirected to My Activity
page. • You can see my entire browsing history,
though I’ve just cleaned it in my browser. • To remove this data, you should open an
additional menu (to do it, click on the three vertical dots in the upper right corner of
the page). • In the menu, choose “Delete activity
by” and then “All time.” • You can delete the data received for a
certain period of time, specifying it in special fields. • Click “Delete.” • As you can see, the browsing history is
deleted. Previously, Yandex accounts also had a similar
tool that saved all browsing history of a user. It was known as My Findings. After Yandex portal was updated, it seems
to have been removed. So Yandex doesn’t have it anymore. In this video, I can’t help mentioning Tor
browser which by default doesn’t save browsing history, cookies or cache, and uses a chain
of servers to go to a certain website. That is why it is the most privacy-focused
browser and the one to choose for anonymous web surfing. But this is a topic for another video, and
