How to open private window in Safari on Mac device

One of the features of the Safari web browser built into your Mac that will come in handy time and time again are the private browsing windows that you can open to browse the web privately without having your browsing history stored in your computer for the next user to see. If you’re not aware of how to open private window in Safari on your Mac device then simply follow the steps given in this article.

Steps to open private window in Safari on Mac device:

When you want to open a new private browsing window in Safari, you must first have an instance of Safari running on your Mac’s desktop.

  • Move your mouse to the Menu Bar and click File > New Private Window.
  • A new window should appear that has a dark-colored Smart Search field with white text.
  • That’s it.

As an alternative to opening the menu from the top of the screen, you can also use the following keyboard shortcut Shift + Command + N.

If you don’t want to do above process every time you want to use private browsing mode, and you want to enable a set-it-and-forget-it method of forcing Safari to always open in private browsing mode when it’s opened like you can in iOS, you can also follow these steps.

  • Launch Safari and go to the Menu Bar and click Safari > Preferences.
  • If not already in the general tab and open it.
