Anonymity when browsing the Web can be important for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you are concerned that your sensitive data may be left behind in temporary files such as cookies, or maybe you just do not want anyone to know where you have been.

No matter what your motive for privacy might be, Chrome's Incognito Mode may be just what you are looking for. While browsing in Incognito Mode, cookies and other files are not saved on your hard drive. Even better, your entire browsing and search history is automatically wiped out.

Incognito Mode can be activated in just a few easy steps. This tutorial shows you how it is done.
