Leave page - how the button works

The button takes you to the home page of

The button clears the history in some cases

When you click on the "Leave the page quickly" button, this page will in some cases be cleared from the history automatically. This is especially true if you are using a browser other than Firefox and if you clicked the "Leave the page quickly" button without first clicking on other links on the page.

If the page has been cleared, you cannot see it in the history, nor can you use the back button to go back to the page.

Clear your history if you want to keep your visit secret

Mobile phones, tablets and computers remember which pages you have visited, and you need to clear your history if you don't want anyone to see that you have visited a particular page.

Here's what to do if your history hasn't been cleared even though you've used the leave page button:

Clear history in Chrome:

1. Click on the three items in the top right corner (menu).

2. Select "More tools" and then “Clear browsing data".

3. Select the time range and click on "Clear data".

Clear history in Safari (iPhone and iPad):

1. Go to the "Preferences" app.

2. 2. Click on "Safari" and then on "Clear history and website data".

Once you've done a cleanup, it won't show which pages you've visited, but there's a chance that someone using your computer/tablet/phone will see that a cleanup has been done.

Open the page in anonymous mode if you do not want to clear your history

If you choose to open this page in anonymous mode, the browser will not save pages you have visited. This is called, for example, "New login window" or "New private window", depending on the browser you are using.
