Private browsing is not a fancy thing and more and more users of Apple iPhone or iPad devices running in iOS 12 and iOS 11 have beginning to express this concern. They are well aware that the internet apps they are using, whether it is Google Chrome, Safari, or any other browser, are tracking all their moves. And from the usernames and the passwords they use to access particular websites to their search history and the links they click on, it can all be stored.
If you too are concerned of all that, you have to know that most browsers have a killswitch that can pause everything described above, except for the cookies storage. It is called the Incognito Mode and it can be easily activated. Nevertheless, you benefit from this kind of protection only during that one-time session. If you have closed the browser, you’ll have to activate it once again when you return.
To continue using your default browser on Apple iPhone or iPad in iOS 12 and iOS 11:
- Launch the app;
- Go to its settings – somewhere at the upper right corner, a 3-dot or a 2-page small icon;
- Tap on it and select the entry “New Incognito Tab”.
If you want to use a different browser:
- Launch your Apple App Store;
- Type “browser” in the search box;
- Go through the results that you receive and decide which one you want to try.
As a useful observation, you have at least two alternatives. One of them is the Opera Browser, known for its handy browser-wide privacy mode. And the other one is Dolphin Zero. Of course, you’re free to test any other browser you like on your iPhone or iPad in iOS 12 and iOS 11 – everything it takes to let you experience a private browsing session!
