Your browser history is typically stored inside your browser. Using a VPN will not change this. But you can clear browsing data in Safari.
Your browsing history might also be inferred by others monitoring your internet connection, such as your internet service provider or Wi-Fi operator. ExpressVPN encrypts all data between your device and the ExpressVPN servers, making it impossible for an ISP or rogue Wi-Fi to record the sites you visit.
Note that browser history is not the same as search history. If you are logged in to Google and using its search engine, those searches will be recorded even if you are using a VPN. (Learn how to delete your Google search history.)
Although there are free VPNs and proxy services, they are not recommended as they do not offer the same privacy and security benefits of paid VPN. Many do not work as advertised, some may even sell your data, and most will leave your networks vulnerable to attack.
Contact your VPN provider if you find that your VPN service isn’t working with Safari. There may be a number of factors that could be affecting this and it’s best to seek clarification.
No, Safari itself does not have VPN functionality. The ExpressVPN app on your device will secure your Safari browsing.
