Many people believe that private browsing will keep them safe from viruses, malware, and hacking attempts. This is because local data will not be stored. Therefore, it will protect them from fraud and theft when they enter, for example, financial details or passwords. But this is unfortunately not true.

Because private browsing relies on an internet protocol (IP) address supplied by your internet service provider (ISP), it is still possible for third-parties to detect your browsing session and exploit flaws. Furthermore, software bugs, HTML5 APIs, and even browser extensions have, in the past, been the source of accidental leaks and have allowed third-parties to access search and internet history through private browsing.
