Erasing Your History
Shoebox lets you erase your history, so other people can't tell which photos you've looked at. Choose Browse ▶ Clear History (⇧⌘H).
In the Catalog preferences, you can set the number of items Shoebox remembers in the history. If you uncheck "Save history and selected items", Shoebox will clear the history every time you close the catalog.
