Why Surfing Porn in Any Browser’s Incognito Mode Is Not Private or Anonymous

Browsing for porn in your browser’s Incognito mode might not be as private as you think

Last week was rocked by the infamous Cambridge Analytica-Facebook data breach where the CA supposedly used Facebook data to honeytrap victims into voting a particular candidate in the 2016 United States Presidential elections. I have long argued that users should log out of Facebook completely before surfing porn websites as this data is open to manipulation. The Cambridge Analytica-Facebook data breach points directly to the misuse of such information.

Carrying my research a bit further, I found the fact that even Google and other browsers gather your negative information which can be used to manipulate you! I present you with another fact you didn’t know. Surfing porn in any browser’s Incognito Mode doesn’t mean that Google, Microsoft, Mozilla or hundreds of other browsers don’t know your porn habits.

Yes! browsing in incognito mode is not as private or anonymous as you think.

First to basics! Almost all of those who surf porn do the same using the browsers incognito or private browsing mode. It is a fact that Incognito mode doesnt save history but that’s about the only protection it grants you. 99 out of 100 Google Chrome user think surfing porn in Incognito users is safe! Admit it, you use your browser’s Incognito window to surf porn yourself!!!

Why surfing in Incognito is not private?

Opening a private or incognito browser in either Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari or Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer only ensure your computer does not remember your online activity but it doesn’t mean that the company doesn’t know about it. In fact, all the above companies gather such data during your incognito nocturnal sojourns and it can be used like Cambridge Analytica guys used it in Facebook data breach case. All web browsers make sure your web searches and online history are not visible the next time you log in but secretly collect data about your porn surfing habits

Why isn’t Incognito porn surfing private or anonymous? You Incognito browsing is stored by your ISP, your company and eventually the browser company. Your internet service provider – or ISP – is able to monitor every webpage and web search you made from your house.

Try opening your bank account or email webpage in Incognito mode. You will find that the data like your username and password are filled up despite the Incognito mode not saving your data. It is fact that most browsers pull data from local memory to fill such details in both normal as well as Incognito mode.

Google has been very up-front about its privacy policy for surfing in Chrome browser Incognito mode. “Going incognito doesn’t hide your browsing from your employer, your internet service provider or the websites that you visit.” Google has warned.

Actually signing into your Gmail account in Incognito mode makes Google’s job of tracking your porn surfing habits that much more easier. 

If you haven’t disabled or paused your account’s Google Web History – you are able to log-in and track your porn surfing activity there, too.

What about other browsers? Most browsers do the same thing what Google does. Like Google, Mozilla Firefox uses an almost-identical disclaimer on its private browsing mode. But again, “while this computer won’t have a record of your browsing history, your employer or internet service provider can still track the pages you visit.”

Then there is something called Super Cookies. Many porn websites use something called Super Cookies which are able to track your movements across the web even when you are browsing in private mode. Super Cookies are like the regular, a lightweight software and sit on a website and fingerprint users who visit the page. When you return to that particular page again at a later date, the website is able to track the entirety of the user’s activity between the two visits.

Considering the above facts, it is unwise to think that your Incognito mode porn surfing habits are either private or anonymous. If you really want to be anonymous, use VPN but don’t be under the impression that your Incognito browsing records are private.
