Clearing the Web pages you've viewed on your iPad can prevent nosy friends and family members from knowing what sites you've visited in Safari. This is also ideal if you forgot to turn on private browsing to prevent your iPad from storing information about your Web browsing session. Clearing your viewed pages doesn't affect your bookmarks or any other part of Safari. You can clear all viewed Web pages in the Safari part of the Settings app.

Step 1

Tap "Settings."

Step 2

Tap "Safari."

Step 3

Tap the blue "Clear History" button, and then tap "Clear History" again when a confirmation dialog appears.
