Is Chrome incognito mode secure?Definition

  • It is an additional built-in tool for browser. The function is provided by many up-to-date browsers, which implies anonymity and therefore privacy. So, to understand it we need to look for some details.

‘Incognito’ functions

  • Pages viewed by you are not stored in your history, after all the gatefolds are closed.

‘Incognito’ inactions

  • You are visible.

If you are still turn to its usefulness, you will be pleased to adopt it while surfing for a present for your girlfriend who makes use of your connected device. In other cases the function seems to be unreasonable.

Ways for your network defense

As the name of the mode is misinforming, you should pay attention to more effective protective measures you can apply for your networking. One of such methods is a VPN. The defensive technologies practiced by the tool are to provide you with a true incognito regime while working online.

Privacy:  all the traffic is to be locked with a ‘long’ bit-key, which ensures that your data is confidential. A server location park gives a possibility to ‘travel all over the globe’ to a customer. While connecting to one of the presented servers, you are able to use the network of the country you have chosen and any geo-restricted resource.

Security: your online activities are to be encrypted with the applying of up-to-date protocols, which makes you free from tracing and interference.

Anonymity: Seeing that your true address is shifted with one of the servers’, you get anonymity staying invisible for all the participants of your Internet connection and interaction. But you should be elective when choosing a service, as some of the providers keep metadata or even logging that can be further handed over of a third party interested in your actions.

All in all, a reliable VPN is a better solution for your online protection if comparing it with many other tools in particular ‘incognito’ built-in function.

To conclude it can be stated that if you want your granny to think you are sitting in the corner of the room while playing with your ‘mouse’, the mode is highly effective, as nothing will be stored in your history. But if you are looking for thoughtful defensive measures, a VPN is a right idea.
