About Private Browsing and Incognito Mode
Why should you use private browsing settings on your web browser?
At times, you may want to limit the sites that appear on your browsing history.
Also, if you are a web developer, it is a good way to make sure you aren’t using any files that are in your browser cache. This way, by using Incognito Mode in Chrome, you know that the page you are viewing is the latest version and not a saved version on your hard drive.
Furthermore, Incognito Mode makes sure that you aren’t using cookies for an added layer of privacy protection. Plus, this setting allows you to sign in to multiple accounts.
Now let’s outline the steps to private your browser and use Incognito Mode in Chrome.
