The iPod touch is the only iPod that runs iOS -- Apple's mobile operating system -- and as a result, it is capable of browsing the Internet. Its browser works the same as any desktop or mobile Internet client, allowing you to browse Web pages, search for videos or images, and log onto sites like Facebook and Twitter. Its privacy options are similarly extensive. If you want to keep your Web activity private, it's possible to clear your iPod's online browsing history.

Step 1

Select "Settings" from the iPod's main home screen.

Step 2

Scroll down the "Settings" screen and select "Safari" to open up the browser's preferences tab.

Step 3

Go past the primary toggle switches for Safari. At the bottom of the screen, select "Clear History" and "Clear Cache" to clean out all signs of your browsing activity.

Step 4

Return to the home screen once both tasks are completed.
