Google’s new Nexus 6P has several different security measures. From a fingerprint scanner, Android 6.0 permission controls and more. However, security and privacy are still on the minds of many users. Another important one is the browser history, and today we will explain how to clear or delete the Nexus 6P browser history.
In fact, browsing history or form data is something that many users of all smartphones often ask us. There are various reasons why a user might want to delete their internet browser or search history on a smartphone, they all have their reasons, and below are some steps to do so.
Fortunately, Google Chrome is the only browser on the Nexus 6P, so the process is very quick and easy. Some phones have more than one browser, but not including the latest from Google. As a result, we have a simple set of instructions that will quickly show users how to close their browsing habits and tracks.
Android devices save almost everything we do. From Google Maps navigation, Google searches, web surfing and more. It’s convenient when we need it, but it’s also something that can be removed, turned off, or cleared in history. Especially the browser, which saves every site we visit. This is what we want to remove and what many users have sent us emails about.
It only takes a moment, and even better, you can even clear individual searches, instead of all, so you don’t look like you’re hiding your tracks.
Users may want to do this so that kids don’t see what they searched for for birthday gifts, Valentine’s Day ideas, general privacy concerns, or for many other reasons that we can’t will be covered. To each his own.
Being a Google Nexus 6P means there’s only Google Chrome and an easy-to-visit place with all the history you need to delete. Below are some screenshots of what owners can look for when deleting or deleting browser history.
To begin, open Google Chrome. This is the web browser. Once open, look and tap on the three “” dots on the top right. This will open a popup menu, where you scroll down and select “”.
In the history tab, users will have access to a list of all websites visited using Google Chrome on the Nexus 6P. Users just need to tap the “clear browser data” button below and select which information they want to remove, as shown in the screenshots below.

You get a similar option of checkboxes as our screenshots, and users have control over what to remove or what to keep, or you can clear everything. Another great benefit of Google Chrome is that you can turn off individual site visits or searches, instead of all or nothing like Samsung’s browsers, so it doesn’t look like you’re hiding your tracks. Just press x to delete each individual search or visit you want to delete.
Users should be careful not to clear “AutoFill Data” as this is where Google helps us with everyday things or forms. Such as email addresses, login names, or passwords that users choose for Google Chrome to save. Which means you have to re-login everything. Nobody wants to do that. Unless there are sites you don’t want people to know you’re signing up for.
That’s it, delete everything or just delete what you want, and we’re done. However, there is another way to avoid all this which we have also added below.
If users never want to worry about deleting their history, we can take steps to ensure it’s never saved in the first place. It’s a feature in many browsers (including Chrome) called Incognito Mode. When you’re in the browser, press the same menu button at the top and open a . This prevents Google Chrome from remembering or saving any history, passwords, login information, or sites visited during the session. This is the best way to do things, and something many users should consider if privacy is a concern.
Fortunately, since it’s on Android, there are some Google Play Store browsers that do this all the time, instead of making users open a private tab. Dolphin zero is good, or Opera has a browser-wide “privacy mode” that can be enabled if you want. Google Chrome is basically being replaced by a little more: private. Everyone has preferences. Use Chrome or go to the Play Store and choose one of the many different browsers to visit the web.
It is worth mentioning that these steps mentioned above are identical for almost all Android smartphones and tablets, and most browsers in the Play Store. Delete that browsing data or prevent it from being saved from the beginning.
