How to Use Private Browsing on iPhone Running on iOS 7

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use private browsing on the iPhone running on iOS 7.

When you use your friend’s iPhone or share your iPhone with your family, revealing your browsing history can be avoided. Here’s how to do it, step by step.

Step 5. Five – start your private browsing.

Step 6. After you browsing session, the history stays clean. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. De-activate the feature in the same way you’ve activated it – just tap “Private” again.

Step 7. A special case of private browsing is deflecting the tracking grip that advertisers hold on you to find out about your preferences and your history. You can obtain this effect by going into “Settings”, “Safari”, and turning on “Do Not Track” feature in the “Privacy & Security” section.
