Some of us utilize the private browsing feature in the Mobile Safari Web browser on our iOS devices. It allows us to browse without any of our Web search history or log in information being saved and recorded on the device.

On the other hand, sometimes you toggle the feature off by mistake, or someone else toggles it off and you'll forget to switch it back later on. The next thing you know, everything you're searching is being cached on your device and can be viewed in your Web history, which can become the source of security issues later on.

A new free jailbreak tweak called SafariAlwaysPrivate by iOS developer IAmOrion prevents this by forcing private mode in Mobile Safari to remain enabled under every circumstance imaginable. You can try to disable private browsing, but you won't be able to.

Private browsing is indicated by a dark user interface color in the Mobile Safari Web browser:



With the tweak installed and enabled, you will be unable to switch out of private browsing mode until the tweak is disabled or uninstalled. This prevents unwanted switching into regular browsing mode and helps as a secondary layer of security for ensuring that your Web browsing information is always secure.

The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can enable or disable the tweak on demand:



With this tweak installed, you'll never have to worry about accidentally switching out of private browsing mode or someone else disabling it on you ever again.

If you would like to give the tweak a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now. The tweak requires iOS 7 to be installed.
