    Hi, Is Safari's 'Private Browsing' really private, is there any trace of websites left in the computer at all?

    Thanks

    It's what I would call "girlfriend resistant" not "plot murder while the FBI is after me" safe.

    But if you're after the latter (or if your girlfriend is a computer nerd), I'd start by making sure nothing is cached (such as quicktime files).

    Yes, it is private. Someone cannot go back and see where you went.
