Set Internet Explorer 9 to Open in InPrivate Mode Automatically

InPrivate Browsing (or filtering) allows you to browse the web without leaving any traces in Internet Explorer. This helps to protect your online privacy from other people who might be using your computer. It does not affect how you appear on the internet. To run IE 9 in InPrivate Browsing mode, press ALT key on your keyboard, go to Tools from the menu bar, and then select InPrivate Browsing. This will open a new browser window. The protection that InPrivate Browsing provides is only in effect during the time that you use that window. You can open as many tabs as you want in that window, and they will all be protected by InPrivate Browsing. However, if you open another browser window, that window will not be protected by InPrivate Browsing.

How to make a strong yet easy to remember password

It isn’t hard to build a strong password. A strong password will reduce the chances your account being hacked. Without a good password, you probably wouldn’t notice until it was too late.

  1. Put a symbol as the first character of the password.
  2. Immediately after first symbol, you may insert any word you like such as your pet’s name.
  3. Allow the first two characters to be capital letters.
  4. After that, you may insert any number you like. It can be your last few digits of your ID number, your mate’s birthday number, etc. It should be at least 4 digits.
  5. Lastly, put another different symbol as the last character of the password.
