Turning on private browsing does not save any history or other details of your Internet usage on your phone, but your network provider can still track your usage.
In today's day and age, technology has virtually erased the geographical boundaries that restricted us. We can now reach out to people across the globe at the click of a button. The Internet is, undoubtedly, the driving force that has spurted the growth of technology to such a great extent. The Internet is the largest library of all the stuff you'd ever want to know, and plenty more than you ever would! The Worldwide Web today is accessible in almost every country, and reaches out to people in the remotest corners of the Earth. This has been greatly facilitated by the coming of age of smartphones that let you browse the Internet without the need for any fancy equipment.
