The history in your Web browser can be a useful tool that helps you find information that you had seen in the past.
But someone with access to your iPhone can see this information, too, so you may want to do something about a page that you visited that you don’t want them to know about.
Our tutorial below will show you how to delete single pages from the Microsoft Edge history in your iPhone app.
How to Get Rid of Pages in the Microsoft Edge History on Your iPhone

- Swipe left on a page to remove.
- Tap the Delete button.
Our guide continues below with additional information on how to delete history items in the Microsoft Edge iPhone app, including pictures of these steps.
Clearing the history from your browser is a task that most people perform periodically, but that some people perform religiously.
In fact, some people are so adamant about not logging their browsing history that they choose to use private browsing sessions instead.
Microsoft Edge gives you a lot of control over how it stores your history.
You can choose to browse privately, you can delete the entire browsing history when you would like to do so, or you can elect to delete individual pages from your browsing history instead.
Our tutorial below will show you how to perform the last of these options so that you can choose to delete some pages from your history, but keep others.
