If you want to take care of your privacy and you don’t want your site history, cookies, and cache to be saved, this article is for you. Did you know that Safari’s incognito (private) browsing exists?

When you use Apple’s Private Browsing option, your browsing details are not saved and the sites you visit are not shared with other devices. In practice, Safari does not store: the pages you visit, the search history and the information used by the AutoFill.

It’s a great way to not show your activity on the net, but remember that it’s not an anonymous form. For example, proxy servers, employers, or sites you visit can track your activities.
