To let you quickly access the websites you have already visited, Safari keeps a record of them. Hence, whenever you enter the first letter of the particular website, it instantly loads up the full name; thereby saving plenty of time and allowing you to quickly head over to the site. However, if you don’t like this feature, you have the option to easily disable frequently visited sites in Safari on your iPhone or iPad.
Safari keeps a track of what you search in order to serve your better. For instance, you will discover the type of ads that interest you. However, the web browser makes sure your private information has the necessary safeguard and remains protected. If you are concerned about your privacy and just don’t want to be tracked, you can wipe out Safari history and website data once you have visited the site. Let me show you how it’s done the easy way!
How to Clear Safari History and Website Data in Safari on iPhone and iPad
Step #1. Launch the Settings application.
Step #2. Tap on Safari.
Step #3. Scroll down to choose Clear History and Website Data. Tap on Clear History and Data button again to proceed.
I would recommend you to enable private mode, if you don’t want to be tracked or don’t want Safari to save the website links that you search. To enable it, open Safari → tap on the tabs icon at the bottom right corner of the screen → tap on Private at the bottom left corner → next, you will get the option to either close all the existing pages before turning on the incognito mode or keep all the pages. Tap on Close All (or you can choose any of the two options as per your need.) → tap on Done at the bottom right corner to confirm the change.
