How to Delete History on MacBook Pro

By K.C. Winslow

The Web history on your MacBook Pro can provide quite a bit of information about you—information that you do not want falling into the wrong hands. From your Web history, a criminal can identify financial information and even locate your credit card details through autofill forms. You can protect yourself by deleting the history on your MacBook Pro regularly.

Step 1

Open the “History” menu in the Apple Safari browser on your MacBook Pro and select “Clear History.” Press the “Clear” button in the confirmation window.

Step 2

Go to the “Tools” menu in the Mozilla Firefox browser on your MacBook Pro and select “Clear Recent History.” Use the pull down menu to select the time range to clear and select what details you want cleared. Press “OK.”

Step 3

Open the “Chrome” menu in the Google Chrome for Mac browser and select “Clear Browsing Data.” Check the box to “Clear browsing history.” Select the time range to clear. Click “Clear Browsing Data.”
