Tracking In Incognito?

It may surprise you that ads can still follow you around in “Incognito” and other “private browsing” modes.

That’s because Incognito mode isn’t really private. emoji_shocked

Incognito mode only deletes your local search and browsing history — just the content on your computer. Websites, search engines, internet service providers, and governments can still easily track you across the web.

That’s why it’s important to use privacy alternatives that don’t share your personal information — such as DuckDuckGo for search.

Using Incognito mode to keep you private online is kind of like using a bucket to put out a raging fire:

If you didn’t know that private browsing isn’t private — you’re not alone! 67% of people who use private browsing mode over-estimate the protection that private browsing modes offer.

Now you don’t have to be part of that statistic — welcome to the Duck Side!
