Caution - Protect Your Privacy

   Protect Your Privacy

Other users of this computer can trace the sites you have visited using information stored in your web browser history file (sometimes called "cache"). Hide your activities on the Internet by following a few simple steps to clear your browser "history" or "cache" before you walk away from the computer. Follow the instructions below.

If you are still concerned about privacy, use a computer outside of your home or office. You can access the Internet for free at many public libraries or through Community Access Program sites. Internet cafes, where you pay a fee to access the Internet, are another option.
