    Re: Is it possible to hide the history folder in Safari?

    you cant delete the history folder but there is no need to take headache juz follow the simple instructions.... :-
    1) open safari
    2) Go to preferences (a gear type icon on the top right corner of the browser)
    3) in general tab there will be an option REMOVE HISTORY ITEM.
    4) Now choose from the menu... like del history after 1 day or manually(to delete history manually.).

    you can also start a private browsing if you dont want anybody to see what you have browsed or any type of remembered history or cookie info etc juz go to the safari menu at the top left corner of browser and then select private browsing..

    * Ya , ofcourse I will definitely help to resolve your problem of hiding the history folder....!

    * You first go to History -> Then Clear History

    * Then after this you reach Home -> libray -> Safari

    * You have to get the information on filehistory.plist

    * There you have to change Ownerships and permissions to "Read only " mode...

    * Check whether the tab is locked or not at the top

    * Then you have to kindly click on the lock icon at the bottom.....

    * Safari still remembers history until you close that one....

    * You can disable the history by autocompleting from book marks...

    * You may also create a Guest user account and log out of yours when you leave the system so that none can view or edit any of your account files in the other way....!

    * You can follow these methods given above friend........!!!

    :-) :-)

    Hi...................,

    safari-clear-cookies.jpg

    I think you can not hide history files.
    Rather you can delete those files from system.
    If needed you can also set those files in bookmark.
    This will save that page and you can use that page at a click.
    This is done and follow stated instructions.
    Make sure that your system has antivirus to save the data.

    Thanks

    Re: Is it possible to hide the history folder in Safari?

    There are two options to do this.....
    First you can make a password enable user account of your and and another one of without password enabled account for the guest user and when ever you are about to close your system then log out your account doing so no one can see your history if inters through the guest account............

    Secondly you can go the SAFARI SETTINGS and then tap on PREFERENCES after that select the general option and there you will find a option to remove the history..........

    Re: Is it possible to hide the history folder in Safari?

    Dear Friend...

    There are generally two ways through which you can get relaxation from history.
    First is manual, and other is automatic.

    1. In manual mode, you have to go to browser setting where the history option is available. From there, you cam delete all the history either one by one or from the beginning. The choice is already given to delete the history bu hour, day or week as well.

    2. In automatic mode, you need to go for private browsing. Means there is an Incognito Windows which means whatever the browser you make, its history never save in your device. This option is available in your customization or setting option which always helps you to do private browsing.







    I hope you get the solution,
    Thank you...
