Private/Incognito Browsing

Troubleshooting alternatives

If you need to clear your cache, cookies, and history for troubleshooting purposes, but aren’t yet prepared to lose the content listed above, you may wish to consider using a private browsing window in your preferred browser as a temporary solution:

Open Chrome.

At the top right, click More More and then New Incognito Window.

A new window appears. In the top corner, check for the Incognito icon Incognito.

There are two ways to open a new Private Window in Firefox:

Click the menu button Fx57Menu and then click New Private Window.  The Private Browsing home page will open in a new window.


Hold down the control key while you click on any link and choose Open Link in New Private Window from the context menu.

Tip: Private Browsing windows have a purple mask at the top.

When you use InPrivate tabs or windows, your browsing data (like your history, temporary internet files, and cookies) isn’t saved on your PC once you’re done.

In Microsoft Edge, select the Settings and More  icon, and then New InPrivate window.

In the Safari app  on your Mac, choose File > New Private Window, or switch to a Safari window that’s already using Private Browsing. A window that’s using Private Browsing has a dark Smart Search field with white text.

How to turn on Private Browsing:

  1. Open Safari on your iPhone or iPod touch.
  2. Tap the new page button .
  3. Tap Private, then tap Done.
