Is InPrivate browsing the same as Incognito?

No, InPrivate browsing and Incognito mode are not exactly the same, but they are very similar. 

InPrivate browsing is a feature of the Microsoft Edge web browser, while Incognito mode is a feature of the Google Chrome web browser.

Both InPrivate and Incognito modes allow you to browse the internet without the browser saving your browsing history, cookies, or other site data. 

The differences between the two are that “InPrivate” browsing blocks more third party trackers and deletes temporary files. “Incognito” mode only stops the browser from saving your browsing history and cookies. 

That said, some websites will still be able to track your activity even in private browsing modes, that’s why we recommend using the Ghostery Private Browser for Windows 10. 

We offer complete and comprehensive tracker and cookie-blocking technology. Furthermore, our private browser also has built-in ad blocking.
