Rich discusses ways to keep your web surfing history and activities private when using the Safari browser on your i OS mobile device.

When it comes to covering your web surfing tracks, before you start using Safari, you'll want to adjust a handful of the options available from within Settings.

To do this, from the Home screen of your i Phone or i Pad, tap the Settings option.

Then scroll down within the main Settings menu and tap the i Cloud option.

From the i Cloud Control Panel menu within Settings (shown in Figure 1), turn off the virtual switches associated with Safari and Keychain.

This will prevent your i Phone or i Pad from remembering usernames, passwords, and credit card payment details related to the websites you visit.

It will also keep your device from syncing details pertaining to Safari's saved Bookmarks, Reading List, Favorites, and History folders with other computers and i OS mobile devices that are linked to the same Apple ID/i Cloud account. Using i Cloud tabs, someone who is using your i Mac (or Mac Book), for example, could see exactly what websites you're visiting, in real time, from your i Phone or i Pad—if the computer is logged in to your Apple ID/i Cloud account.

Next, return to the main Settings menu on your mobile device. From the Safari submenu within Settings, scroll down to the Privacy & Security heading and turn on the virtual switch associated with the Do Not Track option.

This will prevent Safari from creating and updating a History folder, and storing information about webpages you access or view in the future.

Tap the Block Cookies option, and from the Block Cookies submenu, select the Never option, which will prevent Safari from storing any preferences related to websites you visit.
