Tip of the Day - Using someone elses computer to use the Internet

Ever been to a friend's place and needed to use their computer for just a bit?  You get on, then log off their Gmail, log off their Facebook etc just so you can log into the same websites.

Next time you need to do that, try this: Use the browser's incognito or private browsing mode (CTRL+SHIFT+P for Firefox or CTRL+SHIFT+N for Chrome).  This way, it keeps the existing user logged in to their email or Facebook, and you can still log in.  It won't keep track of your history or passwords and it is a quicker and hassle free way to use someone's computer without having to log them out.

About McKay Christensen

After having lived in Oregon, Alaska, and China for the past 10 years doing landscape design and English teaching, I have returned to my home state of Utah and currently work for a growing tech company.

In my free time I enjoy working on my website where I post tutorials and reviews (and anything else I think is geeky) and I also like to write songs for my Super English Kid Youtube channel.

My favorite things to do include anything with my wife and son. Hiking, camping, and photography (or anything else outdoors). Playing Ultimate Frisbee or Ping Pong. Listening to 60s, 70s, or 80s, music. 

Feel free to contact me using my contact page. I would love to hear from any of you!
