How to clear Google Chrome, Firefox and Opera Browsing history in Google Android

The default browser on Android devices is usually Chrome. However there are many third-party browsers you can install such as Firefox and Opera. 

So knowing how to clear them all can save you a lot of trouble with your nosy girlfriend as pointed out in my blog article entitled “How to Delete Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox and Opera browser history on an iPhone”. 

So let's hop to it....

How to clear the browser in Google Android - The three dot menu is your friend

Clearing the browser history of Google Chrome is a piece of cake as the three dot menu features prominently in Google Android.

Google Logo

1.      Tap the three dot menu in the upper-right corner.
2.      Go to Settings.
3.      Go to Privacy
4.      Tap clear Browsing Data.
5.      Check what you want to delete from the resulting list.
6.      Choose the blue button that says Clear Data.

You can also delete your data from a specified time period, ranging from hours, to the beginning of time. My advice; just delete everything, as women have a habit of putting two-and-two together and getting 22 instead of 4.

Clearing Firefox browser history is also very easy.

7.      Tap OK to delete the data.
8.      Go back to the home screen in Firefox
9.      Tap the three dot menu in the upper-right corner
10.  Select Quit at the bottom.
