#Close Incognito mode to stop private browsing

Incognito mode runs in a separate window from your normal Chromium windows.

If you have an Incognito window open and you open another one, your private browsing session will continue in the new window. To exit Incognito mode, close all Incognito windows.

If you see a number next to the Incognito icon at the top right, you have more than one Incognito window open. To close an Incognito window:

  1. On your computer, go to your Incognito window.
  2. Close the window: At the top right, click Close img.

#What happens when you browse privately

  • Chromium won't save your browsing history, cookies and site data, or information entered in forms.
  • Files you download and bookmarks you create will be kept.
  • Your activity isn’t hidden from websites you visit, your employer or school, or your internet service provider.
