Private Browsing

Private Browsing, also known as Private Windows and Incognito Mode,  is a feature included in modern web browsers that allows you to browse the web in a special window wherein no data will be stored locally. There will be no links in the browser history, no cookie data, and no stored images or page content.

The privacy benefits afforded by Private Browsing mode are entirely local as it prevents other users of the computer from seeing what you have been looking at on the web, but does not actually anonymize your activities in anyway.
