It is very easy to use the Private mode in Safari on iOS 15. The private browsing on Safari creates a totally new session for every private tab. These temporary private sessions are completely isolated from each other, but they are also isolated from your main browser window as well.

The benefit of private browsing is that you won’t be logged out of your accounts. It will also not save your browsing behavior, your search history, or the content of any forms that you have filled out. In addition, the session data will be also erased and cookies are deleted immediately when you close your private browsing window.
