The Do’s and Don’ts of Incognito Mode Podcast

Arcane’s second Podcast is up for your listening! In this podcast, we review an older article our CEO Mike Ricotta wrote in 2017 that is still talked about today. The Do’s and Don’ts of Incognito Mode. In this article (and podcast) we are discussing; uses for Incognito Mode, its misconceptions and ways to protect yourself while on the internet. While this article is a few years old, this topic is still brought up today. Many people misunderstand what Incognito Mode does and therefore how to properly use it. Here is a small excerpt:

“When you start an incognito, session, it’s referencing that temp directory. So if that temp directory is empty, you then therefore have no cash and no cookies and no history associated with that browsing session. So when you are starting that session, that’s why you see on very first load, what is a cashless experience? Because you don’t have any of those temporary files stored locally, in that for that browser when you’re in incognito mode because it is a temporary directory.”
