How to turn on Private Browsing using BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.2

TIPS & TRICKS / 07.15.15 / tywill1

The next time you are shopping for a surprise gift for someone, consider using the Private Browser instead of the normal Browser on your BlackBerry 10 device.

Reason being, Private Browsing will prevent your device from storing any information – for example, any pages you may have visited, cached files, cookies and so on. In other words, any trace of websites you visit while using the Private Browser will be removed when it’s closed.

So, if you lend your device to a friend and they use the Browser, they won’t be able to see which websites you visited, which is great if you are planning a surprise! 😀

Here’s how to turn on Private Browsing!

1. Open the BlackBerry 10 Browser
2. Tap the box icon in the bottom left corner (the red arrow)

4. The Private Browser will open, denoted by a blue address bar as per the following screenshot
5. When finished with the Private Browser, close it like any other app on your device!


Tip: When you select Private Browsing, a new browser window will open, and the normal Browser will be minimized. To return to the normal browser, swipe up from the bottom your screen to minimize the Private Browser.
