Private browsing (also called incognito browsing)

All major web browsers offer a feature that provides a private browsing window and deletes the browsing history on your computer after you close it. Depending on what browser you’re using, it may be called Incognito Mode, Private Browsing or InPrivate Browsing. If you are worried that someone can access your private computer it might be better for you to use another one at a library, a friend's house, or work.

Chrome

  • When Incognito Mode is activated on Google Chrome, the browser won’t save your browsing history, cookies, site data or any information submitted on forms. However, it will keep any files you’ve downloaded and your bookmarks.
  • ​To enable Incognito on Google Chrome, click the menu in the top right corner of the browser window. Click New Incognito Window and start browsing.
  • Alternatively, in the browser window, press Ctrl+ Shift + N.

Safari

  • Safari’s “Private” window removes browsing history, form data, cookies, and also deletes temporary files. To enable Private browsing, choose File, New Private Window, or switch to a Safari window that’s already using Private Browsing.
