If you're like most people these days, you probably have some level of concern about privacy when it comes to your online activities. Nowadays almost all web browsers have a built-in privacy mode and Safari in iOS7 is no exception. Safari actually did have a privacy mode in previous version of iOS but that involved having to go into Settings and digging through a couple of layers of menus to get to it. Here in iOS 7 just tap the pages button in the lower right-hand corner and then tap Private.
Now, because I already had a page open, I'm asked whether I want to close all the currently open pages or keep them open. It's entirely up to you but I'll choose Close All. And now I'm in private browsing mode. Notice that the address bar at the top of the screen is darker now, which is a visual indicator that I'm browsing privately. So now, I can just type in a web address. And this is what private browsing looks like. But what does it mean to be browsing privately? Basically, in private mode, Safari doesn't allow websites to access your cookies or track you in any way. While in private mode, it also doesn't add any pages you visit to your browser history. Now I think there are many obvious reasons why I might want to use private browsing, but there are also some other advantages, that don't occur to many people. For one, since web sites can't track your activities, you can browse shopping web sites anonymously this way.
The items you browsed for cant be used to offer suggestions to you the For one, since web sites can't track your activities, next time you visit the site. you can browse shopping web sites anonymously this way. I've also come across people who claim that some airline websites can detect when you've been shopping for specific itineraries and will raise their prices as you get closer to the date. Knowing that you'll probably still buy the ticket. But using private browsing prevents that kind of tracking and might land you a cheaper fare. Whatever the case is, you can see it's pretty easy to enable private browsing mode. And it's just as easy to turn it off. Just tap the Pages button again. Tap Private. If you have any pages open, you'l l get the same chance to keep any pages open or to close them all at once. Again I'll chose Close All. And now private browsing mode is off. So that's private browsing in Safari iOS7.
