View visited Web pages in Incognito mode
Open incognito browser
You need to know, incognito mode is not completely anonymous. Although in private mode, your browsing history will not be saved on your browser, but on Windows, your company server, your ISP… or your own websites can still track your browsing history. For example, if you use Google search and log in to Google using private browsing mode, previous searches are stored on the server but not in your browser history. So any bookmarks you save while using private mode will be stored on the server and you can access them even if you turn off private browsing. The safest way is to use VPN.
Incognito browser or other names such as:
- Safari = Private Browsing
