How to start Google Chrome in Incognito Mode to browse safely

Google Chrome’s Incognito Mode enables users to safely surf the web without the fear of being tracked or monitored. The mode does not save browser history or passwords, making it a trustworthy option for many users.

Incognito Mode ensures that no traces of your browsing is stored within the browser, or over Google’s servers. Bookmarks and Downloads can still be saved by users when they opt to do so. However, your browsing is not fully invisible, as your service provider or visited websites can still track your data and use it to display ads, suggest options, and more.
