How to clear Cookies, Browsing History and Cache on Chrome on iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod)

The controls to clear your Cookies, Browsing history, cache and other things in Chrome are all stored in the same screen. To get to these controls and choose what you want to clear, follow these instructions.

  1. Tap the Options button (it looks like three dots in the top right hand corner)

    You may have to scroll right to the top of the website you're on for these three little dots to appear.

    They will be near to the Address Bar.

  2. Scroll down and tap "Settings"

    Depending on the screen size of your device you may have to scroll the Options menu down a little bit in order to see the "Settings" item at the bottom of the list.

  3. Tap the "Privacy" menu option

    The privacy section holds lots of options regarding your personal privacy on your device while using Chrome.

  4. Tap "Clear Browsing Data"

    This will take you to a screen where you can choose the different things you want to clear from Chrome.

  5. Choose what to Clear

    You will see a list of what can be cleared: Browsing history, Cookies & Site Data, Cached Images & Files, Saved Passwords and Autofill Data.

    Tap on each of these items to choose whether or not it will be cleared. You will see a blue tick symbol appear if it is about to be cleared...

  6. Tap the "Clear Browsing Data" item

    When you have chosen what you want to clear and to keep, tap the red "Clear Browsing Data" item at the bottom - and then confirm your decision in the little pop-up which appears.

    Whatever you have chosen to be cleared will now be cleared by Chrome.

  7. Tap "Finished" in the top right hand corner of the screen to resume browsing the internet.

    You will return to the web page you were looking at when you first tapped the Options menu.
