Private Browsing For

Enhanced Cyber Security and Anonymity

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ever had a legitimate need (or desire) to google a topic anonymously?

Private Browsing enhances anonymity and cyber security.

Did you know that in normal mode your browser would typically record a history of every site you visit?

Private Browsing hides browsing history.

 

Ever wonder why advertisements start appearing on your web pages -- based on searches you performed days or weeks ago?
Private Browsing limits this invasive remarketing.

 

In normal mode, the browser records every website you use into the browser’s history, along with other tracking information. Browsers can also remember login credentials and passwords for sites you visit. This can be convenient for pages you visit frequently and other uses. However, one tradeoff to this convenience is privacy.

 

To limit tracking of your searches, you can use the “Private Browsing” feature of your internet browser. Popular browsers have various names for this feature.

A cyber security tip for private browsing.
