When you browse the web, Apple Safari stores information about the websites you visit, including the content and any user names and passwords you enter. Other people who use your computer can view that information. If you don’t want this information stored, use Private Browsing feature of Apple Safari. Here is how :
- Run Apple Safari. On the top-right side, you would see a settings gears like icon. Click on it and select Private Browsing as shown
- Alternatively, if you have set Safari to show the menu bar, you can choose Edit → Private Browsing from the menu
- Apple Safari would confirm if you want to turn on the private browsing. Choose OK as shown
- When you are using the Private Browsing you would see Private written in the right side of the location bar of Apple Safari as shown.
- Private Browsing is always turned off when you start Apple Safari, even if it was on when you last quit Safari. So you will have to turn on the Private Browsing each time you want to use it.
