INPrivate mode is a way of browsing the web without leaving traces in the browser. When you open an InPrivate tab, all the websites you visit in that tab, the passwords you enter, the cookies that are created, and the temporary files that are downloaded are deleted as soon as you close the tab or you close Internet Explorer. An InPrivate tab is marked by the blue InPrivate icon. This icon does not appear on a normal tab.
This way of browsing is useful when you don't want to be tracked or when you're using someone else's computer and you don't want to leave traces of what you visited. This browsing mode is highly recommended when using public computers to browse the web.
