    Remove History

    Hey guys,

    I am working on a project that requires confidentiality for the user. Is it possible to have a website clear browser history when exiting, or something similar in nature?

    Or any other possible suggestions?

    That is entirely under your visitor's control so you have to start by assuming that all the pages they visited will be in the history. That doesn't mean that there have to be cached copies of all those pages stored on their computer though, you can set up your pages so that they will not be cached and therefore when they go back to a page in their history that the page reloads from the server. That will allow you to build protection into the page itself to prevent it from displaying in that situation.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.
