Go Incognito On Mac: Our privacy is something we seldom joke with. Technology is currently advancing at top speed; users’ data, especially on the internet, could be accessed or tracked by most sites. Ging incognito is a TEMPORAL or PARTIAL fix to help you protect a good percentage of your browsing history.
When you go incognito, you are PARTIALLY safe from being tracked on the internet, your IP address, location, etc. are blocked from the sites you access. If you plan on full ghost mode with your Mac, I suggest you get a VPN.
Going incognito on your device varies by browser, you will see how to go incognito on Chrome and Safari browser on your Mac computer.
