The things you search on the internet and your websites are all tracked by your web browser. Whether you are using a Firefox, Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Brave browser, your web browser saves a copy of your browsing activity every time you go online from your PC.
Web browsers are open about this practice, and they do it for your convenience. Modern web browsers save your browsing activity and list it on the Browsing history page, allowing you to revisit the sites when it needs.
On Google Chrome, you need to press the CTRL+H key on your keyboard to open the History page, which will show you all the websites you have visited before. If you don’t clear your browsing history periodically, the chances are that the list might already be a mess for you.
You might have to scroll through a long list of saved histories to find the website you want to visit, which could be tiresome. Hence, to deal with such issues, Google offers you a helpful feature that lets you search Chrome History by date.
Steps to Search Google Chrome History By Date
If you don’t remember the website name or URL, you can at least try to recall the date you have visited the site. If you can recall the date, you can use this nifty trick to find all sites you have visited on that particular date.
Hence, in this article, we will share a step-by-step guide on how to search Chrome history by date. The steps will be straightforward; follow the steps mentioned below. So, let’s get started.
