When it comes to accessing your favorite sites, there is more than one browser to choose from. You may use a browser like Puffin that supports flash or Chrome because it’s one of the most popular ones out there. Every once in a while it’s a good idea to delete browsing history on Android. Whether it’s to hide what sites you visit or to keep your Android device in good shape, it’s always good to know how to do it. In this tutorial, we have listed the steps to clear search history for Chrome, Firefox, Dolphin, UC and Opera browsers.
How to Clear Chrome Browsing History on Android
Chrome is the first one on the list since there’s a good chance this is your browser. To clear your browsing history, you can either go to Menu > History, or you can type chrome://history in the search box.
Tap on the Clear Browsing Data option and add a check mark to everything you want to erase. At the top, you’ll see the option to decide how much of your history you want to clear. It’s set to ¨beginning of time¨ by default, and I recommend you leave it as is. Tap on the Clear Data button to make things final.
How to Delete Browsing History on Android for Firefox
Clearing your browsing history on Firefox is just as easy. Tap on the three vertical dots and tap on the history option. Similar to Chrome, you’ll see your entire browsing history and the button to clear it at the bottom.
Don’t bother looking for what you can and can’t delete since you’re not going to find it. Looks like it’s an all or nothing deal with Firefox.

To clear the browsing history, tap on the gray dolphin at the bottom and tap on Clear Data. Unlike Firefox, you can choose what you want to erase on Dolphin.
You can choose things such as browsing history, cache, site data, cookies, form data, passwords, and location access. So, check away and when you’re done tap on the Clear selected data button.
Clear Your UC Search History
UC Browser may not be up there with Chrome and Firefox, but it’s still a great choice. Clearing your history is also as easy as the other browsers on the list. Tap on the hamburger icon at the bottom and tap on History and Bookmarks.
Tap on the History tab and the Clear button will be at the bottom right. The browser will ask you if you’re sure you want to delete your browsing history, just confirm and it’ll be erased.

Opera is a browser you may have at least heard about. To clear its browsing history tap on the hamburger icon at the bottom right. A menu will appear and when it does tap on the History option. Now, tap on the three vertical dots at the top right and clear your browsing history. It’s that easy.
