How to Use Private Mode on Dolphin Browser for iOS

Here's what to do if you want to go incognito while browsing

Dolphin is a free mobile web browser for iOS that's become popular for its customizability and ease of use. Like most browsers, when you surf the web on your iPhone or iPad, Dolphin stores remnants of your browsing session locally so it can remember passwords, provide faster page loading, sync data, autofill personal data, save browsing history, and more.

Some users, however, prefer more privacy for their web browsing. Luckily, Dolphin features a Private Mode option. When Private Mode is enabled, Dolphin won't record your browsing history and other personal data. Here's how to turn on Private Mode.

This article's information applies to the Dolphin mobile web browser for iPhone and iPad, which requires iOS 8.0 or later. Dolphin also has an Android version.
