MacOS - Safari won't automatically clear the browsing history

December 2016




Issue


I enabled the "Delete history after one day " option in Safari preferences, but even after a week it is still not cleared!!

Solution


From the Safari's History menu, there is the possibility to erase when you want
  • Otherwise close Safari and go to : user (home)/Library/Preferences send the "com.Apple.Safari.plist" file to Trash and empty it.
  • Restart Safari/Safari menu/Preferences and configure your new settings.
