This could come in handy.

Recently, Apple posted full instructions as to how to activate and deactivate Private Browsing in iOS 9. Private Browsing mode protects your private information and blocks some websites from tracking your behavior. Safari won’t remember the pages you visit, your search history, or your AutoFill information.


To turn on Private Browsing, open Safari, then tap Pages icon. Tap Private to turn private browsing on. While Private Browsing is on, Safari appears black or dark instead of white or gray.

If you’re using iOS 7 or earlier on an iPad, open Safari, tap Plus icon to open a new tab, then tap Private.

To turn off Private Browsing, do the following:

Open Safari, then tap Pages icon. Tap Private to turn private browsing off.

If you’re using iOS 7 or earlier on an iPad, open Safari, tap Plus icon to open a new tab, then tap Private.

If you’ve had a chance to play with Private Browsing on your iOS device, please let us know about the experience in the comments.
