hi everyone, first of all I have to tell you that I'm a Doctor and have to keep my patient data online. I'm using Firefox in private mode, but Last day one of my patient told me that all search history in private mode directly goes to Firefox organization instead of your PC cookies/browser cookies, is this true or just a flok,

hello dr,

here is/are my 2cents.

when you use a browser in private mode, when it is closed down/exited by the user then all the data resulting from the private browsing is deleted/wiped away.

however, it doesn't mean that the ISP is not recording the browsing anyways. but the information is locked away and can only be subpoenaed by cops

what might bring some added assurance for you and your clients is to subscribed to VPN.

a VPN service encrypts all data coming to and from computers and web servers.

so if by chance the computer is being snooped on by evil malware, they cannot decipher any data transpiring between 2 machines, ie yours and the webserver.

Helpful?

No, it's not true at all. We don't do it.
