Delete private data

To delete private data, go to Opera > Preferences > Delete Private Data. A dialog displays, allowing you to select the data you want to delete.

This dialog helps you to delete traces of your browsing activity, however take care not to erase useful data inadvertently. If you are not already familiar with them, try private tabs; the data for each private tab is automatically deleted when you close the tab.

Delete Private Data dialog options are:

Delete temporary cookies
Delete session cookies
Delete all cookies
Delete password protected pages and data
Delete HTTP authentication passwords (not in Password Manager)
Delete entire cache
Clear history of visited pages
Clear history of downloads
Clear bookmark visited time
Clear all email account passwords
Clear Password Manager
Delete persistent storage
Close all tabs

Warning: After deleting private data you may need to re-enter various passwords and set up preferences on websites again.
