Whenever we want some online privacy, we just open the incognito mode in the browser and feel free to browse anything we want without any second thought of the security. There is a misconception among the internet users that incognito mode secures your online identity completely. Although it secures you completely offline, it fails to do the same. To learn how to do it, let’s go a bit deeper into it.
What is Incognito Mode?
According to WikiPedia:
Privacy mode or “private browsing” or “incognito mode” is a privacy feature in some web browsers to disable browsing history and the web cache. This allows a person to browse the Web without storing local data that could be retrieved at a later date.
This seems pretty secure, isn’t it? But it’s not! The incognito never prevents the websites you visit from tracking and storing your device’s IP. Your device’s IP is same in the incognito mode.
To verify this just search IP in Google in normal and incognito modes and check for yourself.
How to Hide IP from Websites?The best way to hide your device’s IP is using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service. You can use Proxy though but it’s as convenient as a VPN.Download Betternet VPN and proceed with the installation. Once done open the software and click the connect button. That’s it. Enjoy secure browsing.
