Your Thoughts on Private Browsing
« on: June 03, 2016, 02:54:26 pm »
As we all know, private browsing, generally referred to as 'p0rn mode', is one of the easy ways to sustain some level of online confidentiality. Unfortunately, private browsing is not enough if you truly wish to remain ‘unseen’. There are several basic myths that surround the private browsing mode:

  • Private browsing doesn’t make you entirely anonymous
  • Your downloads will be saved, as well as your bookmarks
  • Private browsing doesn’t spare you from being spied on
  • Private browsing may not work properly due to technical issues

So, what are your thoughts?

It is cool. I use it all the time, and although it does not provide full anonimity, it gives you some options related to that.

I understand that the post is outdated but I have to vent this out. Private browsing is more important than what you think. We tend to search anything on the web regardless of its repercussions. But now it's high time because our searches are being used against us to create a profile which is used to target ads. Also, every ISP can check what we search.
