Clearing the browser history on Galaxy Tab 10.1

Add a little privacy to your tablet browsing habits.

Keeping your browsing history from prying eyes is difficult on a device that you may share with family or friends. Whether you're shopping for a surprise present or an engagement ring or surfing the Web for some other personal reason, you may want to keep your activities private. If you're looking to erase the sites you've visited from the memory of your Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, follow these quick steps:

Step 1: Open the Web browser on your Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Step 5: Hand your device off without worry that your Web page history will be viewed.

Don't forget to erase the browser history in the future. And even though the "Clear cache" option is so close by doesn't mean it's a good idea to overuse it. This will actually make Web sites load more slowly if the images stored in your cache have to be downloaded again.
