New Chrome Update Will Prevent Sites From Checking For Incognito Mode

According to Google, the very purpose of this mode should be respected at a high level: maintaining privacy.

The Incognito Mode of Google Chrome hasn’t been shown a good performance as what the company promised lately. There’re some websites that not only check private browsing but also require users to sign in before giving them the ability to read the content. Google considers that as some sort of flaw, so it intends to make everything go in the right way. By using the Chrome 76 release (which is available on July 30th), a “loophole” would be closed as well as being used with its absence in order to recognize a private session. In addition, the tech giant will also change other ways related to Incognito recognization from now on.

According to Google, the very purpose of this mode should be respected at a high level: maintaining privacy. People usually have a lot of serious reasons when using private browsing and staying anonymous. For instance, they don’t want to have any connection with political oppression or abusive sources. Note that even when it’s under certain conditions or not, publishers are avoiding knee-jerk reactions to the new change. Instead, they’d come with more free views for readers or requirement of registration for all their content.

Concerns over the original purpose of private browsing mode might be cooled down a little as a lot of people think such modes are losing some their core value, though it seems to be tough for publishers. Some well-known and prestigious site like the New York Times has already tracked readership along with detecting Incognito Mode and demand people to subscribe. Of course, the fight will continue until Google’s changes are somehow acceptable. In the meantime, the tech giant says those practices actually violate the spirit of private mode. Both sides have their own opinion and interest.
