Realated ideas on private navigation

Private navigation is a useful functionality of Firefox, but only if you understand the protection it offers. It allows you to hide your online activity to other people who use Firefox on your computer, but it does not make you invisible on the Internet.

Missing idea 1: “Private navigation makes you anonymous on the internet”

In reality : Private navigation does not mask your identity or your activity on the Internet. Websites and Internet access providers (ISP) can always collect information on your visit, even without identification on the site. If you use your device to your work, your business may monitor the websites you consult. If you browse the web at home, your Internet operator (or its partners) can access information on your navigation. Only a virtual private network (in English Virtual Private Network, Abbreviated by VPN) can hide your location and encrypt your activities online, thus retaining your identity and your data away from prying eyes. If you need to stay anonymous online, try Mozilla VPN.

Missing idea 2: “Private navigation deletes your computer any trace of your activities on the Internet”

In reality : Private navigation works by allowing you to navigate a private window without saving cookies, navigation history and passwords. When you download a file from a website, it remains on your computer, but does not appear in the Firefox download manager. When a site is added to bookmarks during your private browsing, it remains in your bookmark list.

Misconception 3: “Private navigation does not display any element of navigation history”

In reality : By default, private navigation displays the sites visited and the bookmarks as you enter the address bar. Firefox records these pages during your ordinary navigation. If you do not want to see any suggestions, you can deselect them in the privacy and safety panel of the Firefox settings in the section Address bar.

Privacy Preferences 65

Missing idea 4: “Private navigation protects you from typing recorders and spyware”

In reality : Private navigation does not protect you from malware installed on your computer. If you think you have one, follow these instructions to delete it and prevent such a concern from happening again.
