Questions and Answers
I can't delete the Google browsing history on a Note2?
In the browsing history it shows all the sites I have visited with a little square next to them and I go to settings, and clear cache, clear history, etc. and the page is still there in Google with all the sites I searched for.
If you are unable to clear your cache on your Note2 using your web history settings on Android then tap on your Google Now icon on your Apps scree and navigate to Settings >Google Account History>Web & App Activity. Once you are at the Web & App activity page look at the very bottom of the screen. There is a bar that gives the option of tapping Manage History at the very bottom of the screen.
Once the Manage History screen is open you will see a scrolling list of your entire search history. These items have check boxes next to them that you can tick to remove or you can remove all of your search history at once. The options for deletion of history on your screen are -
- from the past hour
- from the past day
- past week
- past four weeks
- since the beginning of time.
Select one of these options and tap an answer circle to "Remove." Ideally you should select "since the beginning of time" if you really want to start fresh with your phone history.This should succeed in removing all previous searches you have made on your Note2.
