Removing Sites from Your Browser History

The browser history is designed to store previous visits in an area that is easily accessible at the click of a button. This is useful when you forget to bookmark a site and remember visiting it last week and wish to return. Unfortunately, in the case that you are viewing sensitive material that you do not wish others to see, this can be a security risk. To prevent unwanted security risks please follow the directions to remove particular sites from your browser’s history. Please note that you will have to do this after you have completed this survey if you do not want anyone to know that you completed it. It is also a good idea to do this every time you finish surfing the web.
