Delete browser data

Some data is saved in the browser for your convenience. For example, passwords you entered, autofill data, search terms, and addresses of visited sites. There are two options for protecting your anonymity in the browser:

  • It's not effective to delete your data after you visit a site, since a hacker might steal it during your visit.
  • If you delete your data, you risk losing information that you might need (such as passwords).
