If the filter only matches on one domain the last hit date gives away when you visited that domain last time - this is basically the same kind of information that you have in your browsing history. I am not sure what your reasons are for clearing browsing history but I guess that the same reasons should apply to ABP hit statistics.

Wladimir Palant wrote:It would be an option to integrate this feature with the proposal in https://adblockplus.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3966 (only clear if last hit was on this domain) - but the idea is to save the address of last hit strictly as an opt-in feature.
Wladimir Palant wrote:As to the other proposal (only save hits for the interval for which history is being kept) - I'm not sure about it. This setting is often being decreased for reasons of performance rather than privacy. Since hit counts don't have a performance impact, one would need an Adblock Plus specific setting rather than reusing a global one.

There already is (and it's not new): https://adblockplus.org/en/preferences#savestats
