Private Browsing is a Little Known Safari Feature
Here’s a very useful feature that is widely overlooked by Safari users, the ability to enable Private Browsing. What does that mean exactly? Basically it allows you to browse the web without a trace; nothing is added to the history, autofill, downloads window, and no information about what you are viewing or reading on the web is saved or cached. This is extraordinarily useful for many situations, particularly if you are on a public computer and you’re doing anything private, say checking your email or bank balance.
Enabling Private Browsing is extremely easy:
- Go to the Safari menu and scroll down to Private Browsing
A confirmation window will now appear and clarify if you’d like to enable private browsing, listing what it does and doesn’t allow. Click OK and you’re good private and good to go.
Never use a public Mac without it!
