Steps to clear internet history in Safari on your Mac

16Safari comes bundled with iOS and macOS, and serves as one of the highlights when it comes to Apple products. Despite some limitations, Safari is still the number one web browser on Mac thanks to its excellent performance.

However, Safari comes with the same old problem. Like any web browser, Safari keeps track of where you have been on the web. This comes in handy especially if you want to launch your recently-visited webpages in Safari. However, that also poses some possible privacy problems.

Fortunately, Safari allows you to clear your internet history on your Mac. And we will show you how it works in this post. Before we proceed, make sure that you are now running macOS Sierra.
