Going Incognito in Chrome
By browsing the internet in Incognito mode doesn’t make you go completely anonymous, but it ensures that Chrome doesn’t store the information on the websites that you have browsed or visited. There is a possibility that you can browse as well as manage the extensions in Incognito. We have listed some points here that will help you to disable as well enable the Chrome extensions in the Incognito mode.
Step 1: open up the Google Chrome. Now go to the upper right-hand side corner of the webpage, and then tap on the hamburger menu, which is indicated through three lines.
Step 2: now from the menu of the drop-down, choose More tolls and after that select Extensions.
Step 3: you will be able to see the list comprising all extensions appearing in front of you. Extensions that you can enable in the Incognito mode, will be having the box below them. In order to enable in the incognito tap on the box present beside the ‘Allow in Incognito.’
To disable the incognito, you can simply remove the checkmark from the box.
It is not possible to enable all the extensions in Incognito. You will be able to recognise which you can enable and which you can’t when you will be going through the list of the extensions. The ones where ‘Allow in Incognito’ is written will be the ones that can be accessed in Incognito mode.
Extensions don’t work when the incognito feature is used. Chrome doesn’t allow and disables them as it won’t be able to control how your personal and important data will be handled by these extensions while surfing the internet. Incognito mode doesn’t record the cookies nor does the browsing history. If you still want to have access to these extensions in Incognito mode, then follow the steps mentioned above.
