Topic: How to start private browsing in Safari
The new Safari, version 6, has an improved private browsing mode.
Private browsing lets you surf the web without leaving traces of where you go. So instead of Safari saving your history, cookies, and autofill information, in private browsing mode, all these should disappear once you close the browser window or turn off private browsing. In private browsing mode, Safari will not save files and information in the cache either.
Here’s how you activate private browsing in Safari 6 in OS X:
- Click on “Safari” in the toolbar on top of the screen
- Click “Private Browsing”
- A dialogue box will appear asking you to confirm if you want to turn on private browsing. Click OK.
And that’s it. You have turned on private browsing in Safari.
Want to find out how to turn it off? It’s even easier.
