Why is it so hard to delete chat history?

I have worked out to delete jabber chat history on my windows machine by deleting a particular file.  But I would suggest that having to delete a file directly just to get rid of your chat history is not really user friendly.  I am looking for a way to delete chat history from my Iphone 5 device.  There does'nt seem to be a way.  Why is it so hard....?  Something as simple as this should really be delivered or at least a work around made public.

Yours hopefully

Hi Davinder Ahir

I have the same problem, is not that hard and we are planning to move most of the users to Jabber.

Can I know what path and file are you deleting? at least in windows you can create a schedule task for the deletion.

This is not a direct answer to your question but if you dislike chat history, you can disable it server-side:

Note that this is merely a configuration setting the client is informed of at login. There is no way to enforce this if the client doesn't support it (i.e. Pidgin or third-party clients).
