The browsing history is a helpful concept in all browsers that can make it a lot easier to find a specific webpage again. Your browser also stores other browsing data such as cookies, cached images, and saved form data. Your browsing data is stored locally on your device. You may, however, want to clear your browsing data for a number of reasons. For example, you may want a fresh start with your browser or may be running low on space on your device.
Thankfully, for whatever reason that you want to clear your browsing data, it’s generally easy to be able to do so.
To clear your browsing data in the Dolphin browser, you need to go into the in-app settings. To be able to access the in-app settings, tap the Dolphin icon in the centre of the bottom bar.
Tap the cogwheel icon in the bottom-right of the popup pane to open the in-app settings.
In the settings, scroll down to the “Data” sub-section then tap “Clear data” which will be the top option in that sub-section.
On the next page, you can choose what data types are deleted from your device. “Browsing history” is a list of all webpages that you have visited. “Cache and site data” is a selection of temporarily saved data on your device. “Cookies” are little bits of data generally saved to your device for longer time periods. “Form data” is saved form content that can be automatically filled. “Passwords” are saved website passwords. “Location access” covers which websites have asked for and been granted or denied access to location services.
Simply select the type of content that you want to delete from your device, then tap “Clear selected data”.
Tip: There is no confirmation dialog, so you should be careful to only tap the delete button when you’re sure that you’re happy to delete the selected data.
