Protect your privacy by using Safari’s private browsing mode in iOS 5

Mobile Safari in iOS 5 adds the ability to browse the web in “private browsing” mode. When you enabled private browsing in Safari, your browsing history, web cookies, cache, logins are not saved. Thus private browsing mode leaves no trace of your online activity to be discovered by prying eyes.

To enable private browsing mode, look for Safari under Settings app. Turn on the switch for “Private Browsing”.
