Getting out of Incognito Mode

To exit incognito mode and return to “standard” navigation, simply close the open window. You can do this either by simply closing the open tab or the private mode web page.


Several incognito pages open

If you open several pages in private mode, you will be able to see the number of open pages in the top right corner next to the “Incognito” icon.

To close all these pages, you just have to close them one by one. Let us specify that a web page is different from a tab. In a web page, we can have several tabs open. As you can see in the image below.

So why not always browse in incognito mode? Unfortunately private mode does not mean that you are invisible to advertisers. Indeed, your IP address remains visible to everyone. So your internet service provider, Google, the websites you visited can still track your browsing.

So you might ask, what’s the point? Incognito mode is used to clear cookies, keep your browsing history private and open multiple sessions simultaneously.
