Date: 2020-01-05 17:00:10


Have you ever had the feeling that someone was watching you? You know, that little bit of uneasiness in the back of your mind that forces you to turn your head just to make sure. Well if you spend time on the internet, that’s almost certainly true. Search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo make most of their money selling advertising space.

But advertisers don’t like paying for ads that don’t reach their customer base. So to solve this problem, search engines like to track their users. It’s understandable that some people don’t like the idea of being tracked. For that reason, most browsers now feature an incognito mode to let you search without surveillance. Here are seven lesser-known reasons you might consider browsing incognito.

– This is the safe thing to do any time you’re on a device other than your own. Whether you’re sending an email, checking your balance, or just logging into Facebook, you don’t want strangers messing with your stuff.
– While all this writing about espionage might just be making you paranoid, you still don’t want that suspicious search hanging around in your browser history.
– By turning on private browsing, you can, at the very least, save yourself some awkward conversations if anyone happens to get a look at your search suggestions.
– Maybe you have a rash and want to know if it’s something to see a doctor about. Fortunately, you had the forethought to browse in incognito mode, and you can move on with your life, free from reminders of your itchy episode.
– Private browsing also comes in handy if you find yourself googling the answer to a question you feel a little bad about not knowing. Who’s on the one-hundred-dollar bill? What’s the Queen’s Name? Is there an apostrophe in “don’t”? How do you even spell apostrophe?
– To keep weird or just unwanted videos from cluttering up your feed, you might consider browsing incognito. You won’t have easy access to things like your YouTube subscriptions, but it will keep one-off watches from haunting your homepage.
– Signing in and out of multiple accounts can be a real hassle, and if you’re answering that many emails, you’re clearly a busy person. To save some time, try opening each account in a different private browsing window. Instead of having to go through each account one by one, this trick allows you to check and respond to all your messages at once.
– It doesn’t just prevent your browser from saving logins and history, it also disguises your computer, hiding it from programs meant to track your usage.
– Some booking sites keep track of who’s looking at what destinations. This allows them to adjust pricing accordingly, potentially charging more for trips you’re seemingly sure to make.
– While browsing in incognito isn’t guaranteed to save you any money, it’s a useful trick if you want to make sure you’re getting the best deal available.
