Many of the Web browsers that you use on your computer and your phone will save data to improve your experience with the device. Whether this means cookies that remember the items you’ve added to your cart, or to keep you signed into an account, or passwords that you’ve saved so that you don’t need to enter them again in the future, there are a lot of convenience factors that are enabled by storing data in a browser.
But you may eventually encounter a problem in the browser, and one of the troubleshooting steps to resolve that problem often involves clearing browser data. Our tutorial below will show you how to do this in the Microsoft Edge iPhone browser.
Deleting Data from Microsoft Edge on an iPhone
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 10.3.3. Note that you will be able to select the type of data that you want to delete from Edge before you complete the process. So, for example, if you wanted to save passwords and delete history, you would be able to do so.
Step 1: Open Microsoft Edge.
Step 2: Tap the three dots at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Step 3: Select the Settings option.
Step 4: Choose the Privacy option.
Step 5: Touch the Clear browsing data button.
Step 6: Select the types of data that you wish to keep (if there is no green shading around the button, then that data will be kept), then tap the red Clear browsing data button near the bottom of the screen.
Step 7: Tap the Clear button to confirm that you want to delete the data.
