How To Force Open Mobile Safari On iPhone To A Blank Page

Seldom, when launching the Safari mobile browser on an iOS device, do we wish to go back to the same page we were looking at several minutes / hours / days previously. Often, it’s an annoyance to me that Safari launches on a Google search performed a day earlier to settle a minor dispute, and there’s usually that couple of seconds’ delay in loading the old page before I can get on with the new task at hand. As is so often the case with the thriving Cydia community, there’s a tweak for that; it’s called SafariBlankPage, and we’ve got all of the details coming up after the leap!

SafariBlankPage is an incredibly simple, innocuous tweak that ensures that whenever you load up Mobile Safari, you can always do so on a clean slate. No longer will you be bothered by the clutter of yesterday’s searches and browsing habits, for SafariBlankPage nobly lives up to its name in making certain that all you see is a nice blank page.


As you can probably imagine, there are no settings to configure whatsoever, although we would struggle to think where any changes would be necessary for such a tweak like this. Since there’s not even a toggle to activate / deactivate the blankness within Settings though, you may wish to consider that the only way to temporarily disable SafariBlankPage is to uninstall it completely, which is not of any particular convenience.

Still, if you like to keep everything on your device looking as clean as possible, SafariBlankPage will help you keep Safari spotless upon every launch, and considering it is free to download, it’s one cleaner that does not actually charge any money.
