When you surf the Internet your browsing history is saved somewhere in your computer or laptop so that it can be use again to provide you a better browsing experience. In some ways, this is good it makes your life easier when you visited a website, easier to interact, personalisation according to your browsing history, and other information about you advertising company love to study.
This is also bad because of NO PRIVACY, you will never know what they will do to your data.
So, just in case you want your privacy protected while surfing the Internet there are ways to do it, depending on what Internet browser you use.
Let’s start using Google Chrome. Using Google Chrome, there is no built-in feature to clear your browsing history when you close your browser. You can manually clear the browser cookies or install add-on e.g. Click and Clean, Clean Auto, and other tool. But, I don’t like the idea of installing add-on to my browser. The best approach is using the incognito. Incognito mode is a setting that prevents Internet history from being stored.
How to be in Incognito mode? Open a Chrome browser, press CTRL + Shift + N to open a new browser window in Incognito mode. If you do it correctly, you should see a gray hat (person) on the upper left corner of your Chrome browser.
Using Firefox. It’s simple and straight forward. In Firefox internet browser, click Options, then Privacy. In Privacy History, select Firefox will never remember history.
And Using Internet Explorer. Go to Internet Options, in General tab put check on “Delete browsing history on exit“.
In Privacy tab, put check on “Turn on Pop-up Blocker“, “Never allow websites to request your physical location“, and InPrivate “Disable toolbars and extensions when InPrivate Browsing starts“.
