Google’s Chrome browser has a ton of hidden little tricks you may not know about. Incognito Mode: Google Chrome’s Incognito Mode is a great way to use the browser without any of your browsing or downloading history being recorded locally on your machine or in your Google account.
There are plenty of reasons to try to shield your web activity from prying eyes. When you go Incognito, your browser doesn’t keep track of browsing history, nor will it store any browsing cookies.

We should note that Incognito mode will not block your behavior from being monitored by work or by the websites you visit (they can still log your IP address).If you’re serious about online privacy, consider a VPN service.
