Learn what you can do to protect yourself if you need to remain anonymous.
PROTECTING YOURSELF ONLINE
When giving information about criminal activity, hiding your browser history might be helpful. Different browsers have different names for their private browsing, such as Incognito Mode, Private Browsing and InPrivate Browsing.
Ultimately, they all do the same: They do not save your browsing history, and any information you enter will be forgotten by your computer once you close the browser, adding an extra layer of protection for you.
If remaining anonymous is a concern for you or if you share laptops, tablets and/or mobiles with the person you intend to report, please read the information below to learn more.
However, note that this does not hide your activity from your internet provider or your employer. Read the individual instructions for your browser to fully understand the particular details of each browser.
Safari on Mac
iphone, ipad or ipod touch
