Privacy - Cover your tracks online - No warranty

This advice comes without a warranty of any kind. The best way to hide browsing history is to use a computer which is inaccessible to who you're trying to hide from: The best advice is to use a library, a community centre or a friend’s computer.

It is nearly impossible to hide your web surfing history from someone who really wants to find out where you've been surfing to. That said, most users will be able to take basic action to prevent others from casually observing their browsing history.

The most recent web browsers have private browsing modes that once engaged will hide all browsing until they are switched off - these include IE8's InPrivate, Safari 3's Private Browsing, Google Chrome's Incognito browsing and Firefox 3.5's Privacy Mode.

Even the new private browsing modes leak information about your browsing history in at least two ways known to us - the technical details go beyond the boundaries of this document.

Your ISP (the people you pay for your internet) or local network manager (at work) has additional access and can record your browsing history whether you use a private browsing mode or not - deleting your local history will have no effect on their records.

To help hide browsing:

When in browser, click on tools in the top bar, then click on private data/browsing history; doing this will help hide your history.
