Every time you browse the web on your iOS device this data saves on this device. You can see the websites you visited before just like on your computer. Sometimes it can be very useful to check your browsing history, to easily find what you have been looking for before if you can’t remember it.

However, over time caches and data build up in your browser so it’s important to clean it once in a while. A large amount of cache and browsing data can slower your phone altogether and your free space gets more and more used.

If you do not want your phone to keep collecting browsing data you can browse in Private mode.  To enter Private mode, open Safari, then click on this icon . Tap Private, then tap Done and you will now browse privately. Just remember, if you use this, you won’t be able to search for sites you visited before.
