How to: BlackBerry 10, clearing your browser history


BT_How_ToEarly this afternoon I met a friend on the park while walking the dogs, and he had just bought the Q10 after his Curve 9790 had a dive into the pond in his garden, now he knows it’s not waterproof!

So he bought the Q10 after having a look at mine and loving how easy it was to use with the hard keys and trackball missing. Bit he asked how to delete / clear the browser history.

So where to start:

    1. Open the browser
    2. Tap the 3 button action key followed by settings


    • Tap Privacy and Security


    • Tap either or both of the following
      • Clear History
      • Clear Cookies and other Data


Job done.
