Websites increasingly pull content in from multiple sources, providing tremendous value to you and your favorite sites alike. But you might not be aware that some content, images, ads, and analytics are being provided from third-party websites or that these websites have the ability to potentially track your behavior across multiple websites. InPrivate Filtering provides an added level of control and choice about the information that third-party websites can potentially use to track your browsing activity.
InPrivate Filtering is turned off by default and must be enabled on a per-session basis. To use this feature, click InPrivate Filtering from the Safety menu. To access and manage different filtering options for Internet Explorer 8, click InPrivate Filtering Settings on the Safety menu. To end your InPrivate Browsing session, simply close the browser window.
Note: Because InPrivate Filtering is designed to watch for and block only third-party content that appears with a high frequency across sites you visit, no content is blocked until such levels are detected, nor is any such content blocked which is served directly by the site you are visiting.
Depending on your web browsing activity and sites visited, the amount of time it can take before such content is automatically blocked can vary widely. However, at any time, you can customize which third-party content is blocked or allowed by clicking InPrivate Filtering Settings on the Safety menu.
