Hiding your visit

To hide your current visit, simply click on the “Exit this website” button on the right hand side of every page.

Clicking on this button will take you to the Google search engine homepage. Please note that this will only hide your current visit from the screen and there will still be a record of your visit in your web browser.

Use Private browsing to access websites discreetly

When you are browsing a website and would prefer your visit to be private and untraceable on the computer, use private browsing mode. All modern web browsers offer the private browsing feature, to ensure your web activity stay private. In the Google Chrome browser for instance, private browsing is termed as Incognito mode.

Browsing privately in your browser would not require you to carry out the instructions above as your browsing history is not stored on the computer in the first place.
