Anonymous Browsing Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Purpose of Anonymous Browsing?
While the Internet is an invaluable and irreplaceable tool, it comes at the price of your privacy. ISPs, governments, hackers, and etc., spy on and scrutinize your activities. When you browse anonymously, you can use the Internet without revealing your true IP. It reduces the risk of your data getting exposed or leaked to third-parties.
How to Search the Web Anonymously?
Since search engines like Google and Bing track every search you make and sell that information to advertisers, you should opt for a more privacy-focused option such as DuckDuckGo – it does not collect nor share your personal data! If you use it in conjunction with PureVPN, you should be able to search with a cloak of anonymity.
How Anonymous Is Chrome’s Incognito Mode?
Contrary to popular option, using Chrome’s Incognito Mode does not ensure complete privacy and anonymity. The most it will do is prevent websites from storing cookies. However, your online activities (such as the ads viewed, the searches you made, etc.) would still be visible to websites!
Will a Virtual Private Network Service Keep Me Anonymous?
Yes. When you connect to PureVPN, an encrypted tunnel is established. All your traffic is passed through this tunnel.

Can ISPs See My Browsing History?
