Chrome – Turn On Incognito Browsing

Monday, April 27th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Security Help, Using The Internet

Private browsing means that you can browse without the pages you visit being recorded. It also doesn’t save temporary internet files, cookies and form data. However, private browsing will still not be hidden from your employer, government or service provider. Any files that you download or bookmarks that you create will also be stored on your computer. Previously I showed you how to turn private browsing on in Firefox. Let’s take a look at how to do it in Chrome.

Open Chrome which is on your Desktop or Start Menu. Double click on it.


Then, click on the button which has three lines (similar to in Firefox). This is the Options button and can be found in the right hand corner, at the top.

A menu will open, click on the option which says “New Incognito Window”. The Incognito window is Google’s name for a private browser, ie: you browse “”incognito” or anonymously without your browsing being recorded.


The Incognito window will open. You can now proceed to browse as you would normally.


When you are finished, remember to close all your Incognito windows.
