One of the easyest ways of browsing anonymously is Incognito. Incognito stops pages you have visited from showing up in your history.
To open an Incognito window, press Ctrl+Shift+N, or on a Mac Cmd+Shift+N. It will open an incognito tab. Now you can browse the web anonymously.
However, your internet activity may still be visible to:
- Websites you visit
- Your employer or school
- Your internet service provider
Incognito is a fast an easy way of browsing the web anonymously, however it's not the most secure. However, there are some other ways of browsing anonymously.
2. Onion Skins
Not using real onion skins, that would be silly! But using a browser that passes data through a series of computers, rendering it untraceble.
To use this we'll need some special software. This won't harm your system or anything BUT it can't use Flash, RealPlayer, Quicktime or anything like that, so don't replace your browser with it.
Go to torproject.org and download TOR Browser. Once it has downloaded, click on the installer.
Just go with the default settings. It should take a while to set up. When it's done, you're free to browse the web. But there are still a few downsides:
- Your activity still actually shows up, however it cannot be traced.
- You cannot use Flash, RealPlayer, Quicktime, and others: they can be manipulated into revealing your IP address.
These are two methods of browsing incognito, it's just about finding the right solution. I hope you have learnt something from this tutorial - Logan
