What is Private Browsing?
Private Browsing, introduced by Apple as part of iOS 5 in October 2011, is a setting for the mobile Safari browser that disables several standard tracking and data collection features that are common to most browsers.
Enabling Private Browsing blocks websites from placing cookies on your iOS device. While cookies can be used by sites to track visitors for advertising purposes, they also enable sites to remember user information that can be used to automatically log a user back in when they revisit the site, or auto-fill certain information. As an example, if you visit Amazon.com and log in with your account information, the website will remember who you are when you revisit the site later. Without cookies, you’d have to log-in every time you visited Amazon. Depending on your preferences for security, this can be either a positive or negative result of blocking cookies.
Solution: Turn off Private Browsing.
