What is the private or incognito mode really useful or not? And what’s the quickest way to start a private browser session?
The various web browsers have been using a private or incognito mode for some time. Many users still think that they are anonymous on the web.
That is not true. Website operators still see which web browser you are coming from and which IP address you are traveling with. Even the data stored temporarily in private mode allows users to identify themselves . Despite private mode, even your Internet service provider or even your employer can continue to track which websites you visit . And the browser manufacturers ( especially Chrome ) still track you.
But why is the private mode good?
The private or incognito mode is often jokingly referred to as the “porn mode”. And that meets the description surprisingly well. Private mode stores history data, temporary files and cookies only temporarily. Once the private session is over, this data is deleted, except for downloads and bookmarks. This basically means that only other users on your PC will not have access to the history data that occurred while using the Private Mode. You could call the function “Christmas gifts mode”. That’s the way home-dwellers do when they look at your surf history, so they do not know what gifts you’ve been looking for in which stores.
Useful for testing: Private mode has a nice advantage for anyone who is in any way responsible for a website. For example, if you are logged in to your website, you may also want to test how the site looks like when you are not logged in here and there. With the private mode, this can be done immediately. He does not remember any logins and will not access the login data of the other (non-private) tabs.
