Modern browsers are chock full of powerful hidden features, but one of the most overlooked features is incognito or private mode. If you’ve heard of this feature, chances are you know it, rather infamously, as “porn mode.”
What is Incognito mode?
Incognito mode can help keep your browsing private from other users, all incognito mode will do is erase your browsing and search histories while in private mode, as well as dump any tracking cookies you pick-up during your incognito session.
Now, let’s look at how you can use incognito mode to your benefit.
Several websites put the majority of their content behind paywalls, but allow you to view a limited number of articles for free per month before forcing you to pay for a site subscription. These paywalls are designed with many ways around that 10-article limit, however. When you are at Incognito mode Some sities will let you continue reading an article for free if you follow a link from social media like Facebook or Twitter even after you hit your limit.
Public locations often have PCs that are often poorly maintained and may not erase your browsing history after your session, to make sure nobody stumbles across the login page for your personal website or any other sensitive account, just use incognito mode on public PCs. It’s not a bullet proof form of protection, but combined with telling sites not to store your password and using a dash of common sense, incognito mode becomes an effective form of protection.
No history, please
Porn isn’t the only reason you might want to cover your tracks when searching for information.
Perhaps you want to get information about a medical condition, and you’d rather not have the search terms pop up later on the family PC. Or maybe you’re shopping for a surprise gift and you don’t want anyone to see what you were up to at Amazon. Really, the reasons for keeping some portions of your browsing history private are endless. Your browser’s private mode keeps your browsing, well, private.
So there you go! A trio of shame-free reasons to use your browser’s incognito mode.
