Incognito mode doesn’t do what you might think – Here’s the truth

I know that I use Incognito mode from time to time. And while I’m not going to ask you what you’ve used it for, I assume you’ve used it, too. It serves a purpose, but here’s what it doesn’t do: Make you invisible. And that’s coming straight from Google.

Incognito mode is part of your Chrome browser — so, yup, it’s a Google product. And a U.S. judge recently allowed a $5 billion class-action lawsuit against Google to go to trial. Because even when you use Incognito mode, Google collects and sells your data and makes a fortune off it. And, according to them, that should be already clear to you.

Was it clear to you?

If you care about online privacy, you need our sponsor, ExpressVPN. It scrambles and anonymizes your IP address so you can get as close to invisible as possible, making sure neither Google nor your internet service provider can track you. Plus, all your network data is encrypted. It’s a must-have for truly private browsing.

I use ExpressVPN every time I go online. I just fire up the ExpressVPN app and click Connect. It’s just as easy as turning on Incognito mode, and it actually protects my activity against prying eyes.

With ExpressVPN, you can browse the web safely and anonymously. It never slows down your connection. And, as a listener of The Kim Komando Show, you get three months of ExpressVPN FREE when you buy a one-year package!
