Bookmarks help you save shortcuts to your favorite web pages. This makes navigation faster and enables you to open the desired web pages in seconds from anywhere. However, if you delete them accidentally, accessing your favorite web pages can become quite a task. There’s a workaround for this problem! You can restore Safari bookmarks from iCloud. Here’s the way!
How to restore Safari Bookmarks manually?
To restore Safari bookmarks from iCloud that you removed accidentally follow these steps!
- Open the Safari browser.
- Sign in iCloud.
- Click the Account Settings link.
- Go to the Advanced section.
- Click Restore Bookmarks link.
- Choose the Restore option.
If you have an iCloud account configured, your iCloud bookmarks will appear across all your devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac, etc). This means when you choose to sync Safari bookmarks or update them via addition or deletion on your iPhone, they will appear across all Apple devices (Mac, iPhone, iPad, etc).
Restore Safari Bookmarks from iCloud
Open Safari browser from Mac, or iPad and head over to iCloud.com. Sign in to iCloud by entering your Apple ID and Password.
If prompted to trust the browser, confirm the action. Once done, you will not be asked for a verification code, the next time you sign in.
When the iCloud homepage appears, click ‘Account Settings’ link seen just below your profile name.
Scroll down, to locate ‘Restore Bookmarks’ link under the ‘Advanced section’ as shown in the screenshot above.
Instantly, a new pop-up window will open. The window will begin searching for the Safari bookmarks that are stored on the cloud. Wait for a few seconds until the search is complete.
Once done, you’ll see a list of all the bookmarks that can be restored.
Here, check the boxes to recover deleted bookmarks and in the end, hit ‘Restore’ button.
