When you visit different posts on Reddit, those posts are saved to your history. You can view your history by tapping your profile icon, then selecting “History.”

Using your Reddit history can be a helpful way to return to posts that you’ve visited recently. However, it also means that someone with access to your iPhone can also open your Reddit app and view that history.

If you have a history that you don’t want someone else to see, it’s possible to clear your local history in the Reddit iPhone app. This will delete everything from the History screen on your profile page.
