Have you ever wondered what your browsing history actually looks like? If so, it's time to learn how to clear that history. Your computer stores all the websites you visit in a database called "browsing history". This information is not only accessible to you; others can also see which websites you have visited. So clearing history helps protect your privacy and prevent identity theft. In this article, we will show you how easy it is to delete browsing history from both Google Chrome and other browsers such as Mozilla Firefox.

Anonymity through deleted browser history?

Please remember that even if you delete your browser history regularly, you are not surfing the Internet anonymously. Surfing via a VPN provider offers you better protection. In our big VPN comparison, we tested 10 providers and put together a clear list of our favorites for you.

What is a VPN provider?

The abbreviation VPN stands for "virtual private network". This is a self-contained, encrypted communication over the Internet that allows you to remain anonymous and prevent anyone from tracking your online activities. With a simple connection at home or in the office, we can replace our own IP address with an assigned address protected by different providers.
