If you’re like me, you probably use Safari as your browser of choice on your iPhone and iPad. After all, it makes more efficient use of resources, and it’s not a battery hog. Plus, it offers almost all the features you’d want from a smartphone browser. Over time, however, you may have noticed that every time you open a new tab page, it shows you some of your most frequently visited sites. That’s kinda useful, but what if you have a website over there that you don’t visit any more? Well, you can just delete it. So here’s how to delete frequently visited sites from Safari in iOS 13 on your iPhone or iPad.
How to Delete Frequently Visited Sites from Safari
Deleting frequently visited webpages from Safari is pretty straight forward actually. Just follow the steps below.
- Launch Safari, and open a new tab. Here, scroll down to see the ‘frequently visited sites’. Long press on the website you want to delete, and in the context menu that shows up, tap on ‘Delete’.
That’s it. You’ve successfully deleted the website from your frequently visited sites’ list on Safari.
Turn off Frequently Visited Sites Completely
While it’s easy to delete a random website that you visited once and is now showing up in your frequently visited websites, if you don’t really use this feature much, you can actually completely turn it off if you’d like. Here’s how:
- Go to Settings -> Safari. Here, turn off the toggle next to ‘Frequently Visited Sites’.
Now you’ll no longer see the frequently visited sites show up in Safari. Easy, right?
Delete Frequently Visited Websites Easily
So that’s how you can easily delete frequently visited sites from Safari. So the next time you visit some random website without turning on Private Browsing mode (hey, it happens, and I’m not judging), and you find that website sitting in your frequently visited sites section in Safari, you’ll know exactly how to get rid of it. Or you could just turn off the feature entirely from Settings and never be worried about anything like this happening at all. It’s your call. Either way, I hope this tutorial helped you, and if you have any other questions about using iOS 13 or Android, or Mac, or what have you, just send them my way in the comments and I’ll definitely try and help you with them.
