In Safari --> Preferences --> Privacy --> Manage Website Data, I'm unable to remove the data that shows up as Databases. I'm able to remove Cookies and Cache data but not able to remove Databases. Please see the screenshot.

enter image description here

Could you please let me know how can I remove for e.g 123greetings.com entry showing up as Databases?

I'm on Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

  • also check if there is any files in ~/Library/Safari/LocalStorage – Junme May 16 '18 at 10:59
  • There are thousands of files. ls | wc returns 6733 files. grep -r "123greetings" . returns Binary file ./StorageTracker.db matches Binary file ./StorageTracker.db-wal matches. I suppose I will need to delete StorageTracker.db but it has tons of entries and it might also delete the ones I want to be kept. What can I try? – Sandeep Kanabar May 16 '18 at 11:13

go to ~Library/Safari/Databases/ and delete the database

    That was pretty helpful. I deleted the Databases.db but it still doesn't work. I mean 123greetings.com gets deleted only to reappear the next moment. – Sandeep Kanabar May 16 '18 at 10:01
