Private browsing, privacy mode or incognito mode is a privacy feature in some web browsers to disable browsing history and the web cache. This allows a person to browse the Web without storing local data that could be retrieved at a later date. Privacy mode will also disable the storage of data in cookies and Flash cookies. This privacy protection is only on the local computing device as it is still possible to identify frequented websites by associating the IP address at the web server.
The Paid Traffic Program in cluding Google Adsense will be NOT paid for the traffic view from Incognito Mode, or Private browsing or Privacy mode.
Incognito mode does not make your surfing completely anonymous, but it does prevent Chrome from storing information about all of the websites that you have visited. It is also possible to browse and manage your extensions while in Incognito. Follow the steps below to enable or disable Chrome extensions while in Incognito mode.
How to Enable and Disable Chrome Extensions in Incognito Mode
Step 1: Open Google Chrome. In the upper right hand corner of your webpage, click on the hamburger menu (three lines).
Step 2: From the drop-down menu, select More tools and then Extensions.
Step 3: A list of all extensions will appear. Those extensions that can be enabled in Incognito will have a box underneath them. To enable in Incognito, click the box beside “Allow in Incognito.” To disable an extension, uncheck the box.
Not all extensions can be enabled in Incognito mode. You will know which ones can and cannot when you view your list of extensions. Only those with the “Allow in Incognito” box are the ones that will work.
Extensions do not work when you use the Incognito feature. Chrome disables them because it does not control how these extensions handle your personal data when your search the Internet. While in Incognito mode, none of your browsing history is recorded, and no cookies are stored. If you want an extension to work in Incognito mode, you have to follow the procedure above (Steps 1 through 3) in order to make it work.
