When it comes to private browsing, Google Chrome’s Incognito feature is something you might have a good history with (no pun intended). Reports from last year suggested that Chrome’s Incognito mode is not purely Incognito as it might have seemed, thanks to a number of websites which have managed to monitor users’ activity to a specific extent.
In order to combat this issue, Google announced in the early part of 2019 that it would be rolling out updates, empowering Incognito mode to offer you the full privacy you should have had in the first place. For those that were waiting for the change, you’ll be delighted to hear that Google Chrome is ready for an update which will upgrade it to version 76, a facelift in which Incognito browser plays a part of the changes made.
This has all come into place after a loophole was discovered in Incognito mode, which enabled specific websites to find out if you were browsing privately. If the user was then clocked by the website, they would be prevented from further browsing unless they logged in to the website or go back to normal mode.
Fortunately, with this new update, you’ll be able to carry on browsing in Incognito mode without facing any more hold-ups. Did you have trouble with Google Chrome’s Incognito before? If so, please let us know in the comments section below or get at us on any of our social media pages!
