    There is a way for websites to tell if you are browsing using incognito mode in Chrome. Why is this a problem? Well, they could use this to show different things on the site or the page, perhaps limiting what you see, removing content or options. It’s hard to say exactly what sites were doing with this information, but it is concerning.

    This will be prevented in future releases of Chrome and the trick that sites were using to discover incognito mode will be blocked. Your browsing will be even more private (source).

    Bear in mind that incognito does not stop all tracking, it clears your history and identity.
