The Safari Web browser on your iPhone keeps a log of Web pages that you have visited in the past.

From time to time you may find it useful to look back through your history in order to revisit a particular site. You may also have the desire to clear this history for privacy purposes. In this tutorial you will learn how to do both of these things.

Please note that the Safari application must be completely shut down prior to clearing any history, cache, cookies, etc. If you are unsure how to do this, visit our How to Kill iPhone Apps tutorial.

First, open your Safari browser by tapping on the Safari icon, normally located on your iPhone Home Screen.
