One of the features it provides us with is that the browsing history is going to be automatically deleted when we close it. This helps to prevent this type of data from being stored in it, as well as preventing anyone from entering and seeing the pages we have visited in the browser.

- Click on the three vertical dots.
- Go to Settings.
