The Incognito Mode is a web browsing mode available on many internet browsers. If you’ve used it before on your PC, you probably want to know how to use it on your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus as well. After all, it’s the only way you can navigate online without allowing Google to monitor, track and save everything that you search.
Some people are clueless that their online searches are monitored and used for determining future marketing campaigns. Others know that they are monitored, but they couldn’t care less about it. If you care about your privacy, you will want to use the Incognito Mode when you search in Google Chrome.
With this mode turned on, none of your search queries will be saved and neither your browsing history. Websites won’t be able to automatically remember and fill in your credentials, be it a username, email address or password, and you can finally have that peace of mind that you’re using a service without “someone” constantly watching you.
The only things that will remain from your navigation history are the cookies that websites use. Those cookies will still be stored on your device. Other than that, you’re safe to go.
How to activate the Incognito Mode in Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus
- Tap on the Google Chrome browser and launch it;
- Go to the upper-right corner and tap on that 3-dot icon;
- You will see a context menu expanding, from where you can select the New Incognito Tab;
- You should notice a new black screen of your Chrome browser popping up.
As long as you type in all your search queries on that black screen, you’re going undercover, with the Incognito Mode.
As a final observation, you can navigate incognito from Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus device by using other browsers that navigate incognito by default. Take Dolphin Zero as an example or search in the Google Play Store for more convenient alternatives. Even the Opera browser features a browser-wide privacy mode that you should be able to activate easily so you really have plenty of options on this chapter.
