How to Enable Private Browsing in Google Chrome?

Chrome is one of the lightweight and fast browsers from Google. When you want to check any web page in stealth mode (private browsing), Google Chrome offers the incognito browsing mode. While you use incognito mode, web pages that you open and files downloaded while you are incognito aren’t recorded in your browsing and download histories.

All new cookies are deleted after you close all incognito windows that you’ve opened. Changes made to your Google Chrome bookmarks and general settings while in incognito mode are always saved.

You can also use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Shift+N (Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS) and ⌘-Shift-N(Mac) to open an incognito window.

Browsing in incognito mode only keeps Google Chrome from storing information about the websites you’ve visited. The websites you visit may still have records of your visit. Any files saved to your computer or mobile devices will remain.
