Hide what your browse using Internet Explorer InPrivate Browsing

With Internet Explorer, Microsoft has introduced a new term called "InPrivate Browsing". I will discuss here what is InPrivate Browsing, how to do it, what are the advantages of it. 

InPrivate Browsing 
Internet Explorer 8 InPrivate Browsing can help protect your privacy, by not storing history, cookies, temporary Internet files, or other data. This helps prevent anyone else who might be using your computer from seeing where you visited and what you looked at on the web.

While you are surfing using InPrivate Browsing, Internet Explorer stores some information—such as cookies and temporary Internet files—so that the webpages you visit will work correctly. However, at the end of your InPrivate Browsing session, this information is discarded.

Enabling InPrivate Browsing
You can open an InPrivate Browsing window,  click Safety ( Internet Explorer tool bar menu), Under Safety menu select InPrivate Browsing, as shown in image below. 

Alternatively you can press "Ctrl + Shift + P" to directly launch the InPrivate Browsing window. 
Additionally, you can open an InPrivate Browsing window by right-clicking the Internet Explorer 8 icon in the new Windows 7 taskbar, and then clicking InPrivate." The InPrivate Browsing window will be displayed as shown in image below.

InPrivate Browsing Advantages
You can use InPrivate Browsing to browse Web sites without leaving tracks or browse the Web on computers or networks that you don’t trust".

InPrivate Browsing Will not Prevent you from

  • someone on your network such as a network administrator or hacker from seeing where you went.
  • Hide from a website you visit because that websites might be able to identify you through your web address, and anything you do or enter on a website can be recorded by that website.
  • Any favorites or feeds that you add while using InPrivate Browsing will not get removed when you close your InPrivate Browsing session. Changes to Internet Explorer settings, such as adding a new home page, are also retained after you close your InPrivate Browsing session.
