Web browsing history

Artwork related to browser history

Web browsing history refers to the list of web pages a user has visited, as well as associated metadata such as page title and time of visit. It is usually stored locally by web browsers[1][2] in order to provide the user with a history list to go back to previously visited pages. It can reflect the user's interests, needs, and browsing habits.[3]

All major browsers have a private browsing mode in which browsing history is not recorded. This is to protect against browsing history being collected by third-parties for targeted advertising or other purposes.
