Is it really Incognito? Yes, you hear right. Google’s incognito mode is in the news after some employees started cracking jokes about its privacy.

So the claims of Google that Incognito mode is safe for private browsing is shaking because some of the company employees started bashing the company’s claims and requested Sundar Pichai (CEO of Google) to really take care of people’s privacy and make this search Engines mode really private.
A Survey conducted in 2018 by researchers at Leibniz University and Chicago University in Hanover revealed that 56.3% of people believed that if they use Google’s incognito mode, their search history is not recorded, and 37% assumed that Google doesn’t track people while using incognito.
