    In this folder, we need to find the Google Chrome application
    .

    Once we have entered the application, we are going to learn how to open a new incognito tab
    .
    An incognito tab is a secret page that won't store any of the information or history during that browsing session. It's a way of using Google Chrome, but in a secretive way.

  8. 8
    There is an icon of a detective wearing spectacles
    .
    It says here, "You've gone incognito." Anything that we view in incognito tabs, will not be recorded in our browsing history, cookies, or search history; once all of our incognito tabs are closed. Any files that we download or bookmarks that we create will be kept. It's important to note that some things will not be saved, but if we download files or make bookmarks, then they will be saved. It says, "However, you aren't invisible. Going incognito doesn't hide your browsing from your employer, your internet service provider, or the websites you visit." It will hide our identity only on our phone, it won't hide our identity on the internet. It's not a blanket for total anonymity. Bear that in mind when considering our behavior. We are now ready to use this incognito tab.

    All we have to do is type something into the address bar, and press down on it
    .
    It will take us to our webpage. We use this incognito tab the same way we would use a normal tab. The only difference is the unique features that we spoke about earlier.
