What is Incognito Mode Chrome Browser ?

Browse in private with Incognito mode

If you don’t want Google Chrome to save a record of what you visit and download, you can browse the web privately in Incognito mode.
Incognito mode opens a new window where you can browse the Internet in private without Chrome saving the sites you visit. You can switch between an Incognito window and any regular Chrome browsing windows you have open. You'll only be in Incognito mode when you're using the Incognito window.
If you’re not aware, Chrome’s ‘Incognito’ mode is a browsing mode within the Chrome browser that allows users to surf the net without any of their browsing history being recorded within Chrome. When using ‘Incognito’ mode, all your browsing history is deleted, and when the ‘Incognito’ window is closed, all the cookies that have been created during that session are also deleted.

How Incognito mode works

Chrome won’t save a record of the files you download in Incognito mode. However, the downloaded files will be saved to your computer’s Downloads folder, even after you close your Incognito tabs. You and anyone who uses your computer can see and open the files.
