Why you need to clear your browser history

Some years ago, a story broke out on the Internet, where a
certain presenter was demonstrating how students in Illinois, USA could get
juvenile offenses expunged from their records.

The presenter used his/her
phone. During the demonstration, someone happened to notice a link to popular
adult site PornHub in the presenter’s browser history. Well, you can imagine
how embarrassing that turned out to be for the presenter.
The moral of that story is this: if you have anything you
would not want anyone to see in your browser history, it is best to delete it
before giving anyone your phone or showing it to anyone in any context. Here
are some tips on clearing your browser history and keeping it clean:
Why you need to clear your browser history
This is quite easy. Here’s how to clear your browsing
history on Chrome for Android:

Tap on the menu button from anywhere within the app. 

Press the History button/ to clear an individual item,
search for the item, then press X beside it. To clear everything at once, tap
on Clear Browsing Data. You can also find this button at the bottom of Settings
> Privacy.

Here, you can delete browser history, cache, cookies, site
data, saved passwords and any other autofill data you have set up. When you
press the Clear button, just wait for the process to complete.
If you cannot be bothered to clear your browser history, you
can save yourself the stress by using Incognito mode on Chrome for your dirty
work. Incognito Mode will not store any history, cookies and cache for as long
as you use the feature. However, this does not stop people from looking at your
network activity, so if you suspect that your network activity could be
Of course, you could simply use another browser with more
privacy features. Here are a few other options with privacy modes:
  • Firefox: Has
    individual private tabs
  • Opera Mobile:
    Browser-wide privacy mode
  • Dolphin: Browser-wide
    privacy mode
  • Dolphin Zero:
    Always in privacy mode no matter what you do
  • Maxthon:
    Browser-wide privacy mode

If somehow none of this is enough, there are other tips you
can use to keep your data away from other eyes:
Put a lock on your phone: This is a fail-safe that you
cannot afford to miss out on, especially if you have things you would rather
keep to yourself.
Use an app locker before giving your phone to anyone. Most
snoopers tend to borrow your phoneunder the guise of making a phone call or
text, but somehow they turn up deep in your browser history. An app locker
would make sure they cannot get at your most sensitive apps without your
permission. Of course, there are lots of good options in the Google Play Store.

I think running away from porn sites would be a good idea.
Hope I’m correct.
