Arcane’s second Podcast, “What Is Incognito Mode: Do’s and Don’ts,” is up for your listening! In this podcast, we review an older article our CEO Mike Ricotta wrote in 2017, The Do’s and Don’ts of Incognito Mode, which is still talked about today. You can also read the incognito mode article on our website.
In the article (and podcast) we discuss its uses, 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 the mode does and therefore how to properly use it.
Here is a small excerpt from the podcast:
“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.”
