How to view the browsing history of Google Chrome with InfoFind

Introduction

When you browse the Internet with Google Chrome, your computer saves a history of all your actions. Some of the history can be viewed with Chrome but some of it is hidden such as Archived History and Saved Images. Some of the hidden information contains important information such as number of visits and date and time of access. InfoFind will show you all of this information and if you have administrative privileges InfoFind will show the information for all users on your computer. Your history can be accessed with the free version of InfoFind so if you’re curious then download and install InfoFind today.

Many programs falsely claim to help fix your computer by clearing this information but they are usually harmful programs that scam people for money, and in fact clearing this information slows down many features while only moderately speeding up startup times. Basically you can think of your computer as a book. In the back of many books there is an index; it doesn’t take up many pages and helps you quickly find what you need. A computer works the same way; it has many indexes that take several extra seconds to open when you first turn on your computer, but then when you use your computer they actually help speed it up. With InfoFind you can clear this information if you want to keep it private otherwise there is no need to delete it.
