Almost every modern Web browser offers a quick and easy way to access your browsing history. This makes it easy to locate pages that you were previously viewing, and to which you want to return, but for which you may not have created a bookmark.
The Chrome Web browser on your iPhone 5 is no different in this regard, and you can access the browser’s history from directly within the application.
Chrome even syncs up with other instances of Chrome that you might be running on your computer or tablet, allowing you to share your browsing history between those devices.
Our tutorial below will show you how you can view your browsing history in your iPhone’s Chrome browser.
The history in Chrome is different than the history in Safari. Our Safari history iPhone guide will show you where to find that information.
