Covering your tracks in Safari Video Transcript
Safari has a Private Browsing mode that lets you surf the web without saving your history, cache, or the personal information you enter on the pages. But all your web activity still won't be entirely "private" I'm Brian Tong for CNET.com and In today's Quick Tip, we'll show you how to cover all your tracks. First thing, we've got to thank Dylan Brown from Scotland for this tip! Now your browsing history may not show up in Safari, but some of the sites you visit CAN still be accessed through plug-ins like Flash. The Flash Player plug-in saves a folder of every site you visit that has flash embedded in it. So if you REALLY want to make sure no one finds out what you've been up to, or, you want to find out what sites someone else has been surfing, creepy! This is where you go. So follow along with me. On your Mac you'll go to the Home folder, then Library, then Preferences, find the Macromedia Folder, then go to the Flash Player Folder, and then Shared Objects. In that folder you'll see an Alpha Numeric. Everyone's will be different, but click in that folder and you'll see the list of sites you've visited. If you REALLY want your activity to be private, just drag everything in that folder to the trash and empty it. So there you go, I'm Brian Tong for CNET.com with a quick tip for covering all your tracks when surfing Safari.
