What is incognito browsing?
Incognito browsing, in its most basic form, won't record visited sites to the browsing history, save cookies that show you've been to and logged into sites, or remember credentials like passwords used during sessions (auto-login). Successfully signing into your account via an incognito browser is a great first troubleshooting step to narrow down any sign-in issues that you may have!
Open Incognito In Chrome
With Chrome open, just press Ctrl-Shift-N (Windows) or Shift + + N (Mac OS)
Alternatively, you can click on the three vertical dots at the upper right menu on Chrome and select the New incognito window option from the drop-down list
You can recognize the incognito window by its dark background and a stylized spy icon near three vertical dots. Each time you open a new incognito window, Chrome will remind you of what it can do or can’t do.
On Android or iPad
Open the Chrome app and click on the three vertical dots, select the New Incognito tab to be on a new window.
