Private browsing is a feature on Safari, Apple’s web browser, which allows you to surf the web without having your web history saved. The feature, in itself, is a double-edged sword: it’s great for users using shared iPads who don’t want others to know what they are searching for but, on the other hand, might not be appropriate. In addition to not saving your browser history, the main advantage of private browsing is that certain tracking cookies are blocked. But these come at the expense of keying in the login information of all websites and lack of autofill information. This article explains how to enable Safari private browsing on iPad Pro/Mini/Air, iPad 4/3/2/1.

Part 1: How to Turn on Private Browsing on iPad

Step 1: Launch Safari by tapping its icon.

Step 2: Tap the tabs/ pages icon located at the top right corner of the interface. The icon is made up of two squares, one on top of the other.

Step 3: Tap “Private”.

1. Tap the “Settings” icon.

2. Navigate to General > Restrictions and create a passcode. 

3. Under “Allowed Websites” select “Limit Adult Content”.
