Oh, so that’s what all that’s about. Gotcha.

Whilst originally designed as a way for people to buy secret presents for their partners or to Google things they were too embarrassed for anyone to know, incognito windows are used by a vast array of people to watch porn.
Yes, Google Chrome’s incognito mode allows you to browse porn to your heart’s content and your laptop or phone will store no evidence of it.
And it appears the brains behind Google are well aware of the function’s main use.

When you open 100 incognito windows, a smiley or winky face appears.

    If Google gives you a smiley or winky face, that means it’s tracking you. How do we stop that?

      HAHAHAHA!!! … Stop using Google Chrome would be first, If you would like to stop being followed, I would be using a VPN, or even better TOR the Onion Router…
      ,the latter is more secure but more slowly in downloadspeeds

      Don’t use google/google or google products. Use something like the Tor browser, or Brave.

    Why would you have so many tabs open at one time? I forget how many I have open after three or four.

    This reminds me of an incident at Amherst College about 12 years ago.
    The college itself had a file sharing app. The MPAA came in and tried to
    get it shut down by screaming the app was primarily used for copyright
    infringement, i.e. music. Several from the student body went to a meeting
    between the admin and MPAA reps and successfully argued that since
    the largest part of the file sharing revolved around porn and computer
    games the MPAA’s claim the app was solely meant for ripping music
    was false. Luckily both the college and the MPAA realized there’d be no
    way to go to court and come out looking good, so the issue was dropped.

    On the upside, the local newspaper limits you to viewing 4 articles then locks you down to just headlines until you buy a subscription. Using the incognito feature allows you to view all of the articles for free. Used it on several sites like that.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
