    Hi

    i have a question regarding the private browsing history on mac. I am really trying to find a really important page which I have visited while my Safari was somehow in the private browsing mode.

    I have tried already the command: dscacheutil -cachedump -entries Host on the Terminal but it shows me only my last session and not the full history. Is there any possibility to somehow extend the command in order to see atleast the full day browsing sessions?

    I am searching for hours after a solution but didnt find any hind for my problem. So if you guys have an idea how to approach this problem, just let me know.

    thanks a lot

    cheers

    Um, that's the whole point. No trace. No history.

    Private browsing means just that, no cache, no history to view.

    Just look into your router's logs and see what pages were visited. You might actually learn about your own network too.
