Hi, just wondering if I can use private browsing like I have on my iMac? Is there such a thing for the iPhone? This is my first iPhone.
thanks for a reply

I don't use an iMac but Safari on the iPhone does have a Private "button" when you press the two squares in the bottom right to look at your open pages or add a new one. I assume this is the same functionality (no history, cookies, etc.) that is on the iMac.

Sorry if this is a separate post. I upgraded to IE 11 on Windows 7 and now I can't edit my replies. Hopefully it's soon enough that the board will combine my posts.

Yes.

When Safari is open, tap to expose the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. Tap the tabs icon (overlapping squares in bottom right). You'll find "Private" to the bottom left.
