Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and websites will no longer be able to detect Incognito mode as Google Chrome will prevent this as a matter of safety and privacy.
The Incognito function can be found in almost all browsers, and users take advantage of it, especially if they do not want to receive targeted advertisements, have their route tracked or information stocked.
However, your activity is not that safe because websites and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can use different methods of figuring it out. Whether you are in Incognito mode or not, some sites and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) might have a way of knowing it.
Chrome 76 Incognito Mode To Protect Users’ Privacy Better
Because that needs to stop, Google decided to launch the Chrome 76 later this month. At the moment, a FileSystem API mode is used by Chrome in its Incognito setting so websites can’t track information and the cookies are disabled. However, sites can see this, and they change their behavior in relation to it.
This loophole will be closed by Chrome 76 by the end of this month. With that being said, the websites are now searching for alternative ways of implementing them aside from the paywall they used before. Google’s customers and the company itself do not stop from finding ways to keep this from happening by getting around the Incognito modes and functions.
