Internet it is huge like the ocean on which we surf every day, visiting hundreds of different sites. The development of technology has given us endless possibilities of acquiring knowledge. We can easily obtain information about everything that surrounds us in a few seconds. Currently, it is difficult to find a topic that someone in the world has not yet covered.

However, not everyone is aware that all our internet activity is recorded. Visited websites go to history web browser, and the collected data on their basis are used in a variety of ways. Google algorithms are able to analyze our interests, which is later used, among others to display relevant advertisements. This is not good news for people who value their privacy. It may also happen that the search terms we search are quite embarrassing and we do not want to share them with the world. Fortunately, there is a way around this.
