5 “Private Browsing Is Totally Private”
Every web browser has private mode, which ensures that your browser will not record your browsing history so others can’t track it. But private browsing does not hide your web surfing record from your internet service provider and the sites themselves. It also doesn’t protect you from any law enforcement agencies that may be watching.
This also holds true for VPNs which may maintain their own record of your activity. When shopping for a VPN to help anonymize your web traffic, use one that doesn’t log your website visits.
