If you are browsing the Internet using a shared computer or an Internet café, you may not want to leave any tracks behind. For example, if you’re shopping online for a gift for a family member, you may not want them knowing what web pages you were viewing. In such cases, you can use the InPrivate Browsing feature included with Internet Explorer 8.

The InPrivate Browsing feature prevents information including history, temporary internet files, cookies, form data, usernames and passwords, from being saved by the browser. It essentially leaves no evidence of your browsing behind.

To start an InPrivate Browsing session, open a new tab and select Browse with InPrivate. Internet Explorer launches a new browser session that doesn’t record any of your information. Once you’re finished, end the InPrivate Session by closing the browser window.
