Browsing in incognito mode doesn't protect you as much as you might think

Google has reached a legal settlement related to its Incognito mode in Chrome, aiming to enhance privacy for users. The settlement doesn't involve monetary compensation for users, but it could be valued at billions of dollars based on the personal information protected. Private browsing modes in browsers, like Incognito, offer a fresh start by not saving browsing history or cookies. However, they don't hide location or prevent ISPs from logging activities. Users can consider using virtual private networks (VPNs) and privacy-focused search engines like DuckDuckGo for more privacy online. Nevertheless, complete anonymity is unlikely.
