How Do I Clear Chromium Browser History from Command Line? [SOLVED]

Sun Jun 13, 2021 9:10 am

I need help to find a command that clear the Chromium browser history from the command line without deleting passwords and login info to accounts such as the account for this very forum. I've found potential commands but they seem like they're only meant for cleaning the cache and that is not the same as what I want to do. Is there anyone here that can help me with this?

there's a setting for that right in the browser.
this command will tell you all the commands you can use.

Code: Select all

man chromium
