Even when you are the only person with access to your Samsung Galaxy Note 8, you can never tell when it can get into the wrong hands and someone might see something that you were planning to keep hidden. Instead of worrying about it all the time, learn how to protect your privacy when navigating the web, all the time.
It’s nothing complicated, just a special setting of your internet browser that, once activated, will offer you the best protection for whenever you are surfing the web. If you’re a regular Google Chrome user, you might have heard of the Incognito Mode. But you should know that other browsers have this option as well. Basically, from whatever app you are accessing your websites, you must have this option of doing it without having your moves tracked.
With the Incognito Mode turned on, none of your viewing, searching, or typing history will be remembered. The only things you won’t be able to skip will be the cookies, but those shouldn’t be a privacy concern for you.
To turn on the Incognito Mode on a Samsung Galaxy Note 8:
- Turn on the device;
- Launch the Chrome browser;
- Launch the Settings section – from the 3-dot icon at the upper right corner;
- Tap on New Incognito Tab and that was all.
You won’t be able to miss the activation of the Incognito Mode because your browsing window will automatically turn black. And you will also notice a pop-up that tells you about the change that you just activated.
As suggested above, the incognito navigation on Samsung Galaxy Note 8 can be easily facilitated on any other browser. Check the Play Store and convince yourself. You’ll find a generous selection of such browsers, Dolphin Zero and even the Opera Browser being on top of the list.
