Much like a Web browser that you would use on a desktop or laptop computer, the Chrome Web browser on your iPad keeps track of your history. This gives you another way to find a helpful site that you were browsing earlier.
But if you have been shopping for a gift for a family member that might also use your iPad, then you may want to clearn the browser history once you have finished your browsing. Fortunately you can accomplish this task directly from the iPad by following our short tutorial below.
Clear Your Browsing History in Chrome on the iPad
Note that this will only clear the browser history for Google Chrome. If you use another browser on your iPad, too, such as Safari, then this method will not clear the history for that browser.
Step 1: Open the Chrome app.
Step 2: Tap the Menu button at the top-right corner of the screen.
Step 3: Touch the History option.
Step 4: Touch the Clear Browsing Data button at the bottom of the screen.
Step 5: Touch the Clear Browsing History button.
Step 6: Touch the Clear button.
Step 7: Touch the Done button to exit the window and return to the Chrome app.
Do you sometimes use the Safari browser on your iPad, too? Learn how to clear the Safari browsing history on the iPad.
