  • How-to Hide your visit to The Mix

    Hey everyone

    One of the great things about The Mix boards is that you can be completely anonymous. You can talk about whatever is happening in your life without anyone you know away from this place reading what you write. This can be amazing as it means it's possible to open up and get support for things that you might not want to talk to your friends or family about. Or at least not yet.

    We want you to feel as safe as possible on The Mix, and for lots of people, staying anonymous is a big part of that. So, the idea of this thread is to give you some tech-tips on how best to protect your anonymity. You can also read and sign up to our Confidentiality Pledge.

    Hiding your internet history
    Do you share a computer with friends/family and worry they might find out you use The Mix?

    If you're worried about someone finding your account on The Mix by looking at your internet history or browser cookies, it might be a good idea to use private browsing.

    Private browsing is a special mode built into most browsers (such as Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari) that means you can surf the internet without leaving any record on the computer or device you're using. No history, no cookies, no saved passwords etc. In short, in means that after you close the browser, no-one who uses that computer/device after you can tell if you've been on The Mix.

    To find out how to start private browsing on your computer/device, head over to this page, which has instructions for most browsers.

    That will take you straight to Google
