WHAT'S THE MEANING?
Private browsers are useful tools to hide your identity online when visiting websites. When using private browsers, details you input into your browser are not recorded. Your IP address, browsing history, URLs, and other details will be confidential.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that whenever you browse online your data is open to third parties? These third parties can access your browsing history and use them for profit or their own gain. Did you ever notice that when you search for a topic online, ads related to it appear on your feed or browser? Social media sites like Facebook, Google, and others track you. These giants capitalize from selling their users' data--and that perhaps is one of most intriguing issues today. The data is then turned into targeted advertisements. The targeted ads you notice online come from your own browsing activity and IP address. If this alarms you, there are ways to lessen data tracking on your end.
Private browser apps can help prevent targeted ads. Some function like VPNs on Windows PCs that aim to keep your browsing data safe and secure. Away from prying eyes who use your information for profit. Chrome and Firefox are the best private browsers that have Incognito. But there are other private browsers to choose from as well. Since we live in a smartphone age, mobile apps for private browsers are the best go-to option. These browser apps are available for Android and iOS devices. The main feature of private browsers is blocking ads and sites from accessing personal information.
