  1. Incognito Mode doesn’t keep you anonymous. Your IP address can still be tracked and traced back to you. Your IP address can still be tracked even if you are in incognito mode.
    This means that people or websites might be able to find out who you are and what you have been looking at online.
  2. You can still be tracked by websites even if you’re in Incognito Mode. Websites might still be able to track you through your IP address or cookies.
    Cookies are small files stored on your computer when you visit a website. Even if you delete your cookies, some websites might still have information about you from when you saw them in the past.
  3. Google saves your search history even if you’re using Incognito Mode. Even if you are in incognito mode, your search history is still being held by Google.
    This means that Google knows what you have been searching for online, even if you are in incognito mode.
  4. Deleting your cookies and browser history doesn’t permanently delete your information from the internet.
    Even if you delete your cookies or browser history, your data might still be stored on other websites you visit. This means that people or websites might still be able to track you online.
  5. Incognito Mode is not 100% effective at keeping your browsing habits private. If you are concerned about your privacy, there are other things that you can do to keep your information confidential, such as using a VPN or TOR.
    However, even these methods are not 100% effective and can not guarantee your anonymity.
