Accessing information safely

Many browsers have features that display recently visited sites and record your browsing history. If that's a problem, the safest way to find information on the web might be at a local library, a friend's house or at work.

Private browsing

We recommend that when you need privacy using the internet on your computer (or a computer that people you know may have access to) you use 'Private Browsing'.

 

You are browsing with CCBot, v 2.0

 

Click on the below link for your browser to learn how to privately browse.

If you create new bookmarks while private browsing your browser will keep them when you stop. So avoid creating bookmarks during private browsing.

Anything you download to your computer will not be deleted when you finish private browsing (any files, documents, pictures, images etc that you save), so avoid saving any files unless you are sure you will remove them yourself.

Deleting your browsing history

If you haven't used private browsing, you may need to delete your recent browsing history. Use these guidelines:

Email

If you receive abusive emails you should save them or print them out and keep them as evidence. If you want to hide emails you have sent or received, go to your sent items folder and delete the email, then delete it from your deleted items. Remember that if you started an email and didn’t send it, it will be stored in your drafts folder.

If someone replies to your email, the text of your email may be at the bottom of the email you receive. To remove it scroll down and delete all of the text below their response and delete it then save the email.
