Privacy has been a priority for Apple for years and Safari’s private mode is one of the ways to surf the web more securely. In this article, we will show you the way to use the private windows in Safari browser on the MacBook.
What is a private window?
Safari has had the option to open a private window for some time now. Using private windows is a simple way to enter the web more securely on Mac because Safari takes various actions to better protect your privacy. This way, websites can no longer follow you on the internet, for example, to show you personalized advertisements. This also applies to plug-ins that you may have installed. In addition, Safari does not save which websites you have visited.
How the Private Window in Mac Works?
A useful feature, but the problem is that Safari opens a normal window when you open the browser. Via ‘Archive> New private window’ in the menu bar you can open a more secure window, but you may find it more convenient that this is done by default. This means you just have to tap the Safari icon on your Mac to get started in a private window. Follow the steps below to set it up.
- Open Safari on your Mac and click on ‘Safari> Preferences’ in the menu bar.
- The settings screen then appears on the screen. Go to ‘General’.
- Then make sure that the option ‘A new private window’ is set after ‘Open Safari with’. If you have gone through this, the browser always automatically opens the private mode.
Private windows on iOS
You can also use private windows in the iOS version of Safari. Although it is actually not possible to switch on the mode – like on the Mac – there is a trick to do this.
First, open a private window in Safari on your iPhone or iPad and do not switch off the mode when you go to another app. If you leave the private window in the foreground, you will see it automatically when you restart Safari later.
