Customise your start page in Safari

Personalise your start page so that every time you open a new Safari window or tab, you’ll see the view that works best for you. 

To see your start page, open a new window or tab in Safari 14 or later.

Safari Start Page with customisations pop-up open

To customise your start page, click the customisations button  in the bottom right-hand corner. Then choose from these options:

Favourites shows the pages bookmarked as favourites. If you drag a favourite to another position, or drag it out of the window to delete it, your Favourites Bar will display the changes as well. 

Frequently Visited shows the websites you have visited frequently throughout the day. You can drag items out of the window to remove them individually, or clear your browsing history to remove all items.

Privacy Report shows how Safari has protected your browsing across all of the websites you've visited. Click the report for more detail.

Siri Suggestions shows a list of suggested websites that may interest you.

Reading List shows the pages you have saved to read later

iCloud Tabs helps you navigate to open tabs on your other devices. Move your pointer over this section to reveal a menu  of your other devices and a button to show more tabs, if available.

Background Image offers a curated gallery of images to choose from, and the option to add your own. Scroll right to see more, or click the add button (+) to choose your own image.

If you can't see a start page, choose Safari > Preferences, click General, and then make sure the ”New windows open with” or ”New tabs open with” menu is set to Start Page.
