Private Browsing in Mozilla Firefox

As we know whenever we visit a website it’s data is stored in History and in the Cache. This can be accessed by anyone who uses the same system. This is not safe in cases where the user uses his or her system for financial or any other transactions. So to combat such cases Mozilla has an option called Private Browsing. The advantage of this option that the Data is  not stored in History and in the Cache Memory. Now you are Safe to Access All the Secure websites where we give our personal, financial and preferences. Also it won’t ask for remember password!

To Start Private Browsing

Goto Tools -> Start Private Browsing (Hot Key : Ctrl + Shift + P)


Once u Start Private Browsing, You can See ” Private Browsing ” in Title Bar!


To Stop Private Browsing

Goto Tools -> Stop Private Browsing (Hot Key : Ctrl + Shift + P)

Now is your valuable data protected from prying eyes ?
