Can you turn off InPrivate Browsing and filtering in GPO?

Yes you can. InPrivate Browsing allows users of IE 8.0 to surf the web with out a history, or any other recording data. To be kept by the browser. This eliminates the need to delete your history after you are done. Some organizations do not want to allow users to surf in this manner and want that data recorded. Microsoft has greatly expanded what we can do with Group Policy over the years. One of the new ones is to disable to InPrivate browsing functionality of IE 8 through group policy.
  • Create a new Group Policy Object (or reuse an existing one).
  • Expand Computer Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Windows Components --> Internet Explorer --> InPrivate
  • Double click Turn off InPrivate Browsing and select Enable.
I want to make one final note that needs to be mentioned on privacy. Using InPrivate Browsing will not hinder a network based monitor for watching what you do at work.
