How to Delete My History

By Ryan Casima

Deleting Internet history is very important, especially on public computers or computers that many people have access to. Many Web browsers store information such as form data, passwords, log in names, or keep you logged into website accounts that you may not want to be logged into after you log out of your computer (e.g.social networking, email, work, financial accounts, etc.). This means someone can hijack an account of yours and do unspeakable things to it.
