What is an Incognito Mode

Incognito mode is an internet browsing mode in which your web browser automatically deletes your browsing history and cookies at the end of a session.

Incognito mode is a helpful feature that allows you to quickly move between a personalized version of your web browser and a more impersonal version. Here’s when to use it.

When you use a browser, like Chrome, it saves information from websites in its cache and cookies. If you’re facing any sort of trouble on Forum like logging in, uploading a file, or when you click on a button, it does not work. Clearing cache & cookies fixes specific problems, like loading or formatting issues on sites.

How to use incognito mode

To open an incognito window in Google Chrome on a computer:

  1. Open the Chrome browser app.

  2. In the upper right corner, select the more button (three dots), then choose New Incognito Window. Your browser will automatically open a new incognito window with the incognito icon (glasses and a hat) in the top right corner.

  3. Alternatively, on the menu bar, select File > New Incognito Window.

  4. You can also use a keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + n on Windows or ⌘ + Shift + n on Mac.

  5. Log into with your username/password and perform the same action which initially did not work.
