InPrivate Filtering prevents Web site content providers from collecting information about visited Web sites. InPrivate filtering works by analyzing web content such as ads, maps or web analytics tools on websites you visit, and when the same content is used on a number of websites, it gives you the ability to allow or block that content. You can also set InPrivate Filtering to automatically block any recognized content provider or third-party website, or you can disable InPrivate Filtering. InPrivate Filtering (press Ctrl+Shift+F to enable it) scans the websites you visit and the content providers they use, but does not automatically block them. You can allow or block any content provider identified by InPrivate Filtering as the recipient of your browser information. You can also ask InPrivate Filtering to automatically block each content provider or disable InPrivate Filtering.
