Help Private browsing on an iPad / iPhone

When I upgraded to iOS6, my phone & ipad wouldn't remeber passwords for AO etc & the browser looked different.

This was a paid so I went through the settings and saw that the private browsing was enabled

What does this do? I assume it prevents cookies etc?

Cheers,

iCloud Tab syncing between Macs has been possible since Mountain Lion's debut; iOS 6 brings this feature to Apple's handheld devices.

This means the days of emailing links between devices or simply trying to remember what that one website was you were viewing on your iPad in the bathroom when you're sitting at your Mac in the living room are now over. Any tabs open on any device can be viewed on any other device.

This does of course raise some red flags if you prefer to keep your browsing as private as possible. With a little patience, anyone with access to one of your devices could easily see what you're up to in your browsing session on another computer. Enabling Private Browsing on any device stops its Safari tabs from syncing as long as Private Browsing is enabled. You can also disable iCloud tab syncing altogether by turning off Safari syncing in Settings.
Does that help?

Private browsing just doesn't store any contextual data on the device, if you want to surf for porn but don't want the wife finding out enable it, then disable it afterwards...

Mind you as I say to the boys in Helmand, do you watch Disney Stuff all day and night long?

How come those gambling casinos always get their ads in?

Shhhsss! don't tell the missus, but it is good for a heart rate check at my time o' life?
