This article covers how to use incognito mode in Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Opera for private browsing.

“Incognito mode” is a built-in feature in Chrome and most other browsers.¬†Incognito mode stops a browser from saving any information from the websites you visit, such as cookies, history, or anything entered into a web form (such as a credit card number, address, name, or anything else.) Incognito mode does not prevent you from being monitored by snoopers, but it is an excellent first step to ensure that no search history is stored.
