Incognito Mode


Incognito Mode

Incognito Mode or Privacy Mode is a feature found in most browsers and are made to make you feel like you are surfing the web safely. It is amazing how many people come to me and say that they're ok as far as Internet safety is concerned because they use Incognito mode.

Incognito mode is FAKE NEWS. Incognito mode is DISINFORMATION.

Incognito mode is not what you think it is. The purpose of Incognito mode on a browser is to ensure that your cookies are deleted when you exit your browser. In other words, it assures that the next person to use the computer (such as in a public library) will not accidentally see you login information.

It does not hide your cookies while you surf the web. In fact, nowadays, the Internet turns non-functional when cookies are disabled. It's pretty much an impossibility to turn off cookies.

So just understand that Incognito Mode is a valuable tool for public computers. It has no purpose in an evaluation of your security threats.
