How to Clear Browsing Data in Chrome for iPad

(Image © Scott Orgera)

Google Chrome for iPad stores remnants of your browsing behavior locally on your tablet, including a history of the sites that you have visited as well as any passwords that you have chosen to save. Cache and cookies are also retained, utilized in future sessions to improve your browsing experience. Maintaining this potentially sensitive data provides an obvious convenience, especially in the area of saved passwords. Unfortunately, it can also pose both a privacy and security hazard for the iPad user.

In the event that the iPad owner does not wish to have one or more of these data components stored, Chrome for iOS presents users with the ability to permanently delete them with just a few taps of the finger. This step-by-step tutorial details each of the private data types involved and walks you through the process of deleting them from your iPad.

First, open your Chrome browser.
