IE Browser Settings

From time-to-time you should do some clean up on your smartphone internet web browser. I like to clear my browser history, cache, and cookies weekly to keep my mobile browser performing well and avoid advertisers tracking me around the web. Windows Phone much like  Android, iOS, and BlackBerry offers an option to clear history, cache, and cookies.  Web history makes it easy for you to find previously visited pages so only clear your browser history after you have saved any needed URL’s as a bookmark. In contrast cookies make it easy for websites and advertisers remember who you are and sometimes track you across the web.
