How to view internet history

How to view internet history: When you use the Internet for whatever purpose—whether to do research, engage in online gaming, or simply browse—your web browser will, by default, record your activity and compile a history of your visits to websites. Your most recent visits to websites are recorded in a Web history, together with the data connected with those pages.

The title of the page that was viewed, the date and time of the visit, the length of the visit, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address are examples of the types of information that may be gathered as part of the Web history. In addition to this, it may contain personally identifiable information such as names and addresses, as well as the type of browser and version you are using.

How to view internet history

It is simple to keep track of what you have been looking at on the internet using any of the four desktop browsers that are the most used on Apple Macintosh computers. Find the tab labelled “History” on the row of tabs that runs across the top of your screen.

The tab order will be the same across all four browsers, beginning with File, Edit, View, and History; however, the titles of many of the other tabs will vary depending on which browser you use.

You can access the History feature on personal computers that are running Microsoft Windows 10 or later by clicking the menu button that is located to the far right of the search bar.

This button appears as three vertical dots on Chrome, three horizontal dots on Edge, and three vertical bars on Firefox.

Android phone or tablet running Google Chrome

  • Turn on your computer and launch the Google Chrome web browser.
  • Tap the Chrome menu icon that’s located in the upper-right hand corner of the screen.
  • When the drop-down menu appears, choose History from it. This option is seen in the image.
  • The history of your device may be viewed on the page that appears.

iPhone or iPad running Safari

  • Launch the Safari internet browser on the device you’re using.
  • Tap and hold the back arrow button that is located in the bottom-left corner of the browser window.
  • The newly opened page will display all of the history from your browser.
