Internet – How to Browse the Web Privately

Browsing around the Internet can be, at times, a dangerous thing, especially when you go about scrolling around the World Wide Web in an unsecure fashion. This is one of the many reasons why private browsing came to be, and it has been around ever since the year 2005. However, it should be noted that it still did take a while for every browser to get the feature. Now, no matter what web browser you use, you will be able to surf the Internet in a private manner without leaving a trail of history, cookies, passwords, or other sensitive information.

How to do Private Browsing While Surfing the Internet

Step 1 – If you want to browse the Internet privately when you’re on Google Chrome, don’t open the web browser in the usual way you do it. Instead, open the application in Incognito Mode. You can start the private browsing session in Google Chrome by clicking on the Chrome menu button located on the upper right of the browser’s window. It’s the button with three horizontal bars on it. Once you’ve clicked on it, you will be able to see the option immediately as it says “New incognito window.” Click on that menu item to start browsing privately.

Step 2 – Not a big fan of using Google Chrome? Well, after all, that browser can take control of your computer’s memory like there’s no tomorrow. So if you choose Mozilla Firefox to browse the Internet privately, then all you have to do is to practically do the same thing like you did with Google Chrome. Go to the button marked by the three horizontal lines at the upper right corner of the screen. But the difference here is that you’re going to click on “New Private Window” to start browsing the World Wide Web privately.

Step 3 –  If you’re using Microsoft Edge instead of Google Chrome or Mozilla FIrefox, then not to worry as you can still go about browsing the Internet privately. In Microsoft Edge, click on the button marked with the three dots and select “New InPrivate window” from the menu that pops out. No matter what web browser you choose, do take note that browsing the World Wide Web privately doesn’t mean that you’re completely invisible. You can still be tracked as to what sites you’re visiting from a server, or from someone that’s looking over your shoulder.
