I'm trying to delete the terminal history but the .zsh_history does not allow me to run it, it says permission denied. Please help.


At System Preferences/Security and Privacy/Privacy unlock the padlock and add the terminal to "Full disk access". Then reload the terminal and retry. https://support.apple.com/guide/mac-help/change-privacy-preferences-on-mac-mh32356/mac

  • Yeah! This helped, thank you! But the actual command was: rm ~/.zsh_history Jun 3 at 4:34

Run it? Why would you run it? It's a file in your $HOME. Delete it, if that's what you've set HISTFILE to for the shell to keep the history in.
