Browse privately in Safari on iPhone
You can adjust settings in the Safari app to keep your browsing activities private and protect yourself from malicious websites.
Control privacy and security settings for Safari
Go to Settings > Safari, then below Privacy & Security, turn any of the following on or off:
Prevent Cross-Site Tracking: Safari limits third-party cookies and data by default. Turn this option off to allow cross-site tracking.
Block All Cookies: Turn this option on to prevent websites from adding cookies to your iPhone. (To remove cookies already on iPhone, go to Settings > Safari > Clear History and Website Data.)
Fraudulent Website Warning: Safari displays a warning if you’re visiting a suspected phishing website. Turn this option off if you don’t want to be warned of fraudulent websites.
Check for Apple Pay: Websites that use Apple Pay can check to see if you have Apple Pay enabled on your device. Turn this option off to prevent websites from checking if you have Apple Pay.
When you visit a website using Safari that isn’t secure, a warning appears in the Safari search field.
Erase your browsing history and data
Go to Settings > Safari > Clear History and Website Data.

To hide the sites and exit Private Browsing Mode, tap , then tap Private again. The sites reappear the next time you use Private Browsing Mode.
