The Chrome browser on your iPhone includes many of the features that are available in the full desktop version. one of these options is incognito mode, or private browsing, which allows you to browse Web pages without storing them in your history. But you may copy and paste a link from a different location, or click a link from another page, only to realize that you inadvertently opened it in regular browsing mode.
You may know how to delete your entire Chrome browsing history, but that can be a more complete option that you want to avoid if there are pages in your history that you would like to save for later. Fortunately you can also delete individual pages from your history in Chrome, allowing you to keep the pages from your history that you want, while deleting those pages that you don’t want.
