Force Google Chrome To Open A Website In Incognito Mode

Standard web practices are changing. Websites are more regularly and forcefully tracking everything we do and everywhere we go online. While some people are okay with being tracked, many are not and there are certainly times when users just want to surf as though the web knows nothing about them.

For that reason, Google’s Chrome browser offers an incognito feature which prevents the browser from storing information about the websites you visit. It’s a way to surf naturally and make your own opinions and decisions rather than being force fed ads or services matched to your browsing habits.

While Incognito Mode is handy, it can be much more useful when manipulated to function automatically whenever users visit certain websites. Ghost Incognito is a Chrome extension designed to do just that. It instantly switches the browser to incognito mode when a site on the list is visited.

How To Automatically Open Websites In Incognito Mode

  1. Download and install Ghost Incognito.
  2. After installation you’ll notice a small ghost icon in the extensions toolbar area.
