    Everyone knows that there is an option for Clear History when using the Touch (not iTouch!!!!), but it doesn't really delete and get rid of all the info. I constantly find my accounts logged in on different websites and I am able to use them easily, even after I have cleared history 4 or 5 times. Also, someone else said that pictures of online use were being stored in the hard-drive somewhere.

    Is there any true way to eliminate all or most of the info retrieved and stored when you use WiFi?

    well the account log in info isnt in your history thats in you cache. so you'd have to clear you cache for that to go away. when clearing history, it really does clear your history.

    i doubt that pictures are being taken of your screen and stored on your device. what good would that do? do you think apple is spying on you?

    I think.. If you follow this tutorial.

    Deleting History Via FTP Client

    First, follow a previous tutorial on connecting to your iPod Touch or iPhone via FTP.

    Then, open up your FTP client and locate to the /private/var/root/Library/Safari/ directory.

    Notice the file named History.plist, delete what is in the inside but don't delete the actual file.

    Then, exit out and your history should be deleted.
