Chrome’s Incognito Mode Leaking More Data Than What Users May Think, New Study Says

According to a new study commission by trade group Digital Content Next, Google still collects personal data from users even if they use Chrome’s Incognito Mode.

The researcher from Vanderbilt University who conducted the study says that Google has the ability to retroactively link a person’s private browsing to the usernames and account information they use online using the data with user-anonymous identifiers that it collects.

It was also pointed out that Google says a user’s browsing activity may still be visible to websites, internet service providers, or the school or employer that controls the network when using Incognito Mode.
