Make your visit incognito

Dölj ditt besök - engelska

Do you not want other people to see which websites you have visited? This is where you can find out what you can do.

A computer remembers which sites you have visited. This is so it will visit the site more quickly the next time. But if you don’t have a computer of your own, maybe you want to keep the sites you have visited secret.

Hide the sites you have visited

The web browser has symbols in the upper right corner where you can delete the sites you have visited. These are what the symbols look like:

A menu with three dots in Chrome.
A gear wheel icon in Explorer and Safari.
A menu with three lines in Firefox.

Click on the symbol to see the sites you have visited. You can delete them by ticking them and clicking Delete or remove. Sometimes you can right click and delete; it differs from browser to browser.

Surfing without the computer remembering 

With private browsing, you can visit websites, and the computer won’t register them. You will find the words Private browsing or Incognito under one of the symbols in the upper right corner of the browser. You can also press Ctrl + Shift + P to surf privately on a PC.

There are great films on YouTube that show you how you can keep your Internet activities secret.
