For the people that use their OnePlus 5 for web browsing and do not want to be tracked on your OnePlus and have everything saved that is being searched, it is recommended to use Incognito Mode on your OnePlus Chrome. When Incognito Mode is being used on the OnePlus 5, the search viewing history or search queries won’t be saved. It will also not remember any logins, passwords or other things.
A good way to describe Incognito Mode on your OnePlus 5 is like a kill switch that will not remember what you click on or view during your internet sessions. It is also important to keep in mind that Incognito Mode does not delete cookies that get save on the smartphone even with Incognito Tab.
How to turn Incognito Mode On for the OnePlus 5:
- Make sure the OnePlus 5 is turned on.
- Navigate to your OnePlus Chrome browser.
- Choose the three-dot icon that is located in the right hand corner.
- Choose “New incognito tab” and a newer black screen pop up will not remember things.
You can also use other types of Internet browsers on your Play Store that also do this by default and will not remember any data of yours. A good alternative for using Chrome is Dolphin Zero for the OnePlus 5. You can also use the Internet browser called Opera Browser, which is very popular for a lot of OnePlus 5s that also has privacy mode that you can turn on.
