How to delete your browsing history and protect privacy in UC Browser


If you’re a user of UC Browser 10, you might be wondering how to delete the history of the sites you’ve visited. This process has changed from earlier versions of the popular Android web browser, so it might be confusing if you’ve just upgraded from the previous release. Actually, it’s very easy to remove your history in UC Browser.

Besides deleting your browsing history in UC Browser, you can remove cookies, clear form data, and wipe the cache (or a combination of all of these). Here’s how:
