Do not trust incognito mode with Google Chrome

Privacy quickly becomes a hard-to-earn luxury. When you surf through websites, it's hard to get rid of the scary feeling that you are being watched by unseen eyes: Google, Facebook, your internet service provider, the government, the person sitting next to you, etc.

Sub Among the many privacy enhancing tools is one of the most well known the Chrome Incognito window, Google's private browsing version. The incognito window provides some level of privacy when you surf on a shared computer. However, this is not a perfect solution.

Unfortunately, many people do not understand the implications of Google's Incognito window on privacy and ultimately trust it more than they should. According to a study by researchers from the University of Chicago and the Leibniz Universität Hannover, many users mistakenly believe that Google's incognito mode and other private browser windows protect them from malware, advertising and tracking codes and monitoring connection gateways.
