Incognito mode keeps your activities private on the internet. It doesn’t record your browser history or other data. If you need to delete all the data in a single session, it will actually delete it immediately this allows you to save time by working without worrying about privacy issues that might come up later. There are certain websites that can’t be accessed using incognito as they don’t work well with private browsing mode, but most websites now have features that are compatible with it. The same thing happens when you turn off your computer or laptop. Just close the window and then open it again to go back into incognito mode.

Steps To See Incognito History:

  • Open the Chrome browser


  • Go to “chrome://history


  • Click on the “incognito history” item at the bottom of the page. It will take you to a new page where you can see all the histories from your incognito sessions (if you have used any). 


  • You can also choose to delete specific items from that list by clicking on the X next to them. If you want to delete all of your incognito browsing data, click on “Clear All Browsing Data“.


  • To exit incognito mode and turn it off, close all open Chrome tabs and then relaunch Chrome.

Steps To Open Incognito History on Linux:

  • Click the shift key and type window
  • Click the little cross in the top left corner
  • Click next to go to the history tab
  • Select “history incognito” and click apply

The incognito window will now open as a separate tab, allowing people to browse without leaving any traces. This is useful for browsing without leaving your history, or if you want to stop websites from tracking you. This might be useful if you are looking for files on a computer or computer system that others don’t know about but are stored in another hidden location, like your friend’s house.

Steps To View Incognito History by DNS Cache:

  • Open the Chrome browser
  • Go to “chrome://net-internals


  • Click on the “DNS Lookup” item at the bottom of the page. This will open a new tab in your default web browser, with all of your DNS entries from the last five minutes grouped by hostname and placed in chronological order.


  • To exit incognito mode and turn it off, close all open Chrome tabs and then relaunch Chrome.

View Incognito History on Android or iOS:

  • On Android, Chrome comes Pre-installed by default on most Nexus and Samsung phones.
  • On iOS, you can install a third-party app called “ILK” to view the data from incognito pages in Safari.

View Incognito History on Mac:

  • On Mac OS X, the built-in “Safari” browser does not support incognito browsing (although it can be made to do so using a third party browser called Airmail). To use that feature in Safari, you need to download an extension for Chrome called “Easy Incognito“.
  • The free software “Tails” also supports incognito browsing.
