Turn Private Browsing on or off on your iPad

When you use Private Browsing, you can visit websites without creating a search history in Safari.

Private Browsing protects your private information and blocks some websites from tracking your search behaviour. Safari won't remember the pages you visit, your search history or your AutoFill information.

Turn on Private Browsing

  1. Open Safari on your iPad.
  2. Tap the new page button 
  3. Tap Private, then tap Done. 

While Private Browsing is on, Safari appears black or dark instead of white or grey.

Turn off Private Browsing

  1. Open Safari on your iPad.
  2. Tap the new page button .
  3. Tap Private, then tap Done.
