How to browse privately in Google Chrome


Do you want to browse internet privately (and anonymously) without leaving any trace on your computer? This can be easily done using private mode (also called incognito mode) in Google chrome browser. During private browsing session, your internet history files and details of visited websites are not stored on the computer. Also, internet cookies are deleted once you close the private (incognito) session window.

Chrome: Start Incognito session for private browsing

1. Open Google Chrome browser on your computer. Click on the icon at top right and then click on New Incognito Mode option. You can also open it using keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+N (Windows, Linux, Chrome OS) and ⌘-Shift-N (Mac).


2. New private Incognito Mode has unique identification with detective like logo at top left. History details of webpages you open and browse in Incognito Mode are not stored or recorded on your computer. However, next time you open Google Chrome browser, it will launch in normal (not private) mode. You have to start Private Incognito Mode every-time you want to surf privately using Google Chrome browser.


Things to Note: While no history is recorded on your computer during Incognito Mode, websites you visit can still record details about your browsing at their end. Also, any changes you make to Google Chrome Bookmarks and General Settings during incognito private mode are still saved.
