Cover My Tracks

Cover My Tracks

Sometimes you might want to keep your visit to Body & Soul’s website private. There are a couple of ways to do this, and we have tried to give you as many options as possible here.

Cover My Tracks Button –You can hit the Cover My Tracks arrow which is at the top right of every page. This will take you straight to google.com, so if someone surprises you when you’re on the Body & Soul site, you don’t need to explain why you’re here. The Cover My Tracks button doesn’t mean that the Back button won’t work, so if you have finished using the computer, it’s best to exit the window if you want to be sure. This Cover My Tracks button does not mean that your browsing history is deleted – someone would still be able to see where you have been if they knew where to look, but there are ways you can remove the evidence of your visit.

How to Remove Your Browsing History

Even if you exit a window or move to a completely different site, it is still possible for someone to see which sites you have been looking at, if they know where to look. This is because your computer stores information about each site you visit so it can re-load this information next time you visit. There are ways that you can stop your computer storing this information, but it depends on which internet browser you are using. See the information below for instructions on how to cover your tracks on your internet browser. If you need any help, you can call Body & Soul on 0207 923 6880 and we will talk you through it.
