Re: Private tab tracking

As you are underage I can't offer help without your mums permission
If you have an android phone and use chrome, what's the second option down in chromes settings?

Re: Private tab tracking

Hi TeenGirl,

Thanks for getting in touch, you can find more detained information on browser Privacy Mode and the way it works here, although to be honest (as a concerned parent myself) I would suggest that a frank and honest conversation with your mum around your online activity might be a good idea too.

Re: Private tab tracking

Ok, Thanks.

But I'm still confused......

Can virgin media see my private tab history?

what make you think they'd be interested?

FYI it is dead easy for anyone to see what you are browsing, while you are browsing it - live with it.

 try typing " the bomb is ready" & see if a SWAT team shows up Smiley Happy

You’ve gone incognito  ...

However, you aren’t invisible. Going incognito doesn’t hide your browsing from your employer, your Internet service provider or the websites that you visit.

This doesn't help

I see that all the time

Re: Private tab tracking

it depends on who is smarter and who is more determined.

anyone with more tech savvy than you have can probably install spyware that you'd not notice , or find whatever it is you are trying to hide.

if you are really paranoid,   go use an internet cafe instead, or several different internet cafes - that works in all the spy films Smiley Happy

 on the other hand - there are ways to be really secretive, but you have to go google & learn them... start with TOR browser

but then you need an answer for " why have you installed a TOR browser, what are you hiding "
