Permanently Clear Browser Cache and Cookies on iPhone/iPad


As a long time iPhone user, web browsing has been one of the most frequently used functions for me. As a novice programmer, new challenges come out everyday and I can't live without a web browser for searching answers on Google. When i am on way home, surfing the intent becomes the best option to kill the boring time on bus. Plus, not to day, hang out on eBay or Amazon for shopping. However there comes a problem as technology advances. These days both web browsers and search engines become smarter, which records your browser history and cookies on every website and use this information to display relevant ads on websites you are surfing.


For example, if you bought a bunch of baseball online, then you get the most chances to see a lot of baseball relevant items everywhere, and this is called retargeting in tech words. What's more, each one who use the iPhone or iPad device can see the same ads or other private info too. Definitely, this sort of information is not the one we want to show to others. It will be a very clever move to delete browser caches and cookies to protect your privacy being leaked on public.


Sadly, Simple deletion is not far enough. Safari as the most popular web browser on iPhone or iPad still hasn't provided an option to clear such data. Only private mode is available which is designed for new tabs and didn't do any help to delete previous browsing cookies. You're only left to third party date erasing tools in this case. Fortunately, there are some good ones published on market already, like iOS Data Eraser. It's a powerful and customizable data wiping tools designed for iOS users. You are free to delete specific items like cache, cookies, and photos or delete the whole personal data one time, the best option when selling your device to someone else. What's more, the deleted data is absolutely unrecoverable under this program.
