Check & delete your Chrome browsing history

You can check your browsing history in Chrome. You can also continue browsing what you’ve already started on a desktop or laptop computer, and find related searches.

If you don’t want a record of pages you visited in Chrome, you can delete all or some of your browsing history. If you delete your browsing history, it takes effect on all devices where you're signed in to Chrome and sync your history to your Google Account.

Separately, you can also delete your Google search history from your account.

Your History lists the pages you've visited on Chrome in the last 90 days. It doesn't store: 

  • Chrome pages like chrome://settings
  • Pages you’ve visited in private browsing

Browse privately
