Do you ever want to browse the web without your browsing history being saved? Or maybe you want to keep your search results private from others who might be using your iPhone? If so, you can use Safari's Private Browsing mode.

Private Browsing mode prevents Safari from saving the websites you visit, your search history, or your AutoFill information. This means that no one will be able to see what you've been browsing unless you tell them.

But how to go incognito on iPhone? Let us explain.

To go incognito on iPhone, follow these steps:

  1. Open Safari

And if you are using a Chromium browser on your iPhone you can go incognito by:

  1. Open your browser
  2. Tap the three-dot icon located at the bottom or top right of your screen
  3.  Select ''New Incognito Tab''

This will open a new tab launched in incognito mode with a brief description of the mode which works exactly the same way as Safari's Private Browsing mode.
