Incognito Mode or Private Browsing is one of the best features of web browsers for some time, and although almost all of them allow us to navigate this way, this time especially want to show you how to enable this feature in the most famous browser in the world, Google Chrome.
The first thing you need to know is that this private browsing format is there so that others can’t see what you do while browsing. Yes, under normal conditions, you will be providing an enormous amount of information. For example, you leave traces about the sites you visit, the websites that you log in, and the movements you make, even the money.
Although many of these data are useful for improving the user’s browser experience, sometimes you don’t want anyone to have access to them, and that is when I recommend enabling Incognito Mode or Private Browsing in Google Chrome.
When you navigate in Private Browsing, you ensure that your browsing history information isn’t recorded, the data you enter in the different forms, nor the cookies or other types of details.
