Once you disable this feature, the Mi Browser will reset automatically and you have to go through the setup again to use the browser. If you have to set up the browser again you need to agree to the terms and conditions which will re-enable this feature in the browser by default.
Which Browser To Use?
You can also clear your data from the settings menu so Mi Browser will clear all the data even from the servers which it has collected before. Also, we recommend you to use any other browser on your smartphones like Google Chrome or MozillaFirefox which are a really nice alternative to the Mi Browser.
