Keep your Galaxy S9 Plus Browsing Habits on the Down Low
Most browsers have a Private Browsing mode designed to prevent your browser from doing a couple of things. First, your browser will not save your search history, or your auto-fill information. It will also prevent your browser from saving any cookies the website may want to save on your smartphone. Cookies can contain things such as login information, which allows you to quickly log into your favorite websites and you see how things can turn into a disaster from here.
This is why you should getter learn to activate the Incognito Mode on Galaxy S9 Plus. This is great for keeping prying eyes away and it allows you go about business without having your web searches tracked, so this basically means that no passwords, web history or recent searches can be found. It’s like a chance to keep your Galaxy S9 Plus browsing habits on the down low, so what do you think of it?
However, note that Incognito Mode does not hide your web habits from your network administrator, or any other group or person that might be monitoring traffic. Even with this small inconvenience, let’s take a look at how to enable it on your S9 Plus.
Keep your Galaxy S9 Plus Browsing Habits on the Down Low:
- Power on your device;
- Open the Chrome app;
- Tap the Chrome menu button at the upper right-hand corner of the app. It’s represented by three stacked dots;
- Choose the New Incognito Tab option from that menu and a new black screen will show to confirm that you have activated the Incognito mode. I remember that there was a lot of confusion when private browsing was first introduced, because users couldn’t understand why their browsers suddenly turned black. The point is that every browser should turn dark, or black, when in Private Browsing mode. This is how you can tell whether your browser is in regular or private mode, so don’t worry. Things will go back to normal once you leave this menu;
- In order to turn incognito mode off, tap the square icon on the top right to open your tabs, then close each incognito tab individually or tap the three dots and select Close incognito tabs to close them all.
