How to Open Edge InPrivate Mode

What is Edge InPrivate?

InPrivate is a browsing mode that doesn’t save:

  • Form data
  • Cookies and site data

Also, keep in mind that this browsing mode has some limitations. Let’s find out what they are.

  • Your download history does not show downloads made in InPrivate browsing mode. However, the downloads were saved to your device.
  • InPrivate allows you to create bookmarks.
  • Your ISP, school, or employer can still track you.
  • InPrivate mode disables the extensions by default, except for those you’ve allowed.

Now let’s see how to open it on PC (Windows 11), Android (Pixel 4a running Android 12), and iPhone (iOS 15.2).
