While you are using this site
If you are concerned that someone else may come into the room while you are visiting this site, and you do not want them to see what you are looking at, the quickest way to hide the site is usually just to close the window. It might be a good idea to remind yourself now of the keyboard command used to do this on your computer:
Windows: 'ALT' key and 'F4'
Apple Macintosh: 'Apple' key and 'W'
You could also open another browser window and leave it open at another website, placing it behind the window you are currently using (this site). This way, if you have to quickly close the main window, you will not be left looking at a blank screen.
At any time, clicking the EXIT button in the header of this site will take you away to Google.
After visiting our website

While browsing the internet, information about all the sites that you visited is stored on your computer: websites you visited, every search string you entered in search engines and information you entered on websites and more. You can delete this information from your computer by following the steps described in the links below.
Please note: By other means, it may still be possible for someone to work out which sites you have visited. If safety is a priority we recommend that it is safest to access this site from a safe place; such as a library, Internet cafe or a friend's house.
The links below are for the most popular web browsers. Many other browser programs are available, and they should allow deleting this information in a similar way.
How to clear your browser history
Internet Explorer (PC): Pull down the Tools menu and select Internet Options. Click on the 'Delete Files' and 'Clear History' buttons on the general page.
Firefox (PC and Mac): Pull down Tools menu and select ‘Clear Private Data’. Tick ‘Browsing History’, ‘Download History’, ‘Saved Form and Search History’, ‘Cache’ and ‘Authenticated Sessions; then click on ‘Clear Private Data Now’.
AOL: Pull down Members menu, select Preferences. Click on WWW icon. Then select Advanced, and click 'Purge Cache'.
Safari (Mac and PC): Pull down the Safari menu, select 'Reset Safari', click on 'Reset'. (Safari also has a 'Private Browsing' option which you can choose before you browse and turn off afterwards. To use this, pull down the Safari menu, select 'Private Browsing', and click OK when you see a confirmation message. To turn private browsing off, choose it from the menu again, and close any windows you’ve used to view private information.)
Google Chrome: Pull down the tools menu and select ‘History’ and click on Clear all browsing data’. This brings up a new window that will help you specify what you would like to delete. Google Chrome also allows you the opportunity to ‘go incognito’ by pressing ctrl shift and n together – this enables you to view pages that won’t appear in your browser history or search history, or leave other traces after closing them
