Editors' Review

All the major Web browsers offer private browsing options that make it difficult if not impossible to monitor a user's browsing history. While such features are great for responsible adults, they don't always sit well with another group of responsible adults: those responsible for children. Parents are responsible for what their children do online, yet private browsing features like Google Chrome's Incognito mode make in particularly hard for them to keep an eye on their kids in cyberspace. IncognitoGone is a free tool that disables private browsing in Chrome and Internet Explorer. In Firefox it only disables the visible private browsing option, though, meaning that users who know the keyboard shortcut can still access the feature. Before you run IncognitoGone, please understand that its effects are permanent and can't be undone.

We downloaded, extracted, and ran IncognitoGone, which opened with a small box containing four buttons, one each for Chrome, IE, Firefox, and Safari. We only had the first three installed, so the Safari entry was grayed out. Before we ran IncognitoGone, we opened each browser to verify its private browsing feature. In Firefox, that involves clicking Start Private Browsing on the Start button menu. In Chrome, it's done by opening a new Incognito window. IE's feature is called InPrivate Browsing, and it's found on the Safety menu.

We disabled the feature in each browser. IncognitoGone warned us that the change was permanent before we proceeded. When we opened IE, InPrivate Browsing was gone from the Safety menu. The new Incognito window command was inactive in Chrome's controls. However, not only was the feature still available in Firefox, but so was the menu entry.

For concerned parents or anyone who has a compelling interest in preventing incognito Web browsing on a PC they control, IncognitoGone is a boon. We don't recommend it for individuals who might want to re-enable private browsing later on since that's made difficult to do, by design. Use with caution.

"DO NOT USE"

August 08, 2014  |  By JMad94

 |  Version: Incognito Gone 2.1

Pros

Deletes incognito mode

Cons

TONS OF ADS. This program put an immense number of adds on my computer and I had to use system restore to remove them

Summary

Yeah, it works, but it gives you more ads than the Super Bowl, so it's not worth it at all. Boo to whoever made this program.

"Incognito FREE at LAST"

November 06, 2013  |  By SunDevil84

 |  Version: Incognito Gone 2.1

Pros

Easy to use and gets rid of private browsing.

On Google Chrome, it grays out the "New incognito window" option in the top bar menu. When you try to access an "incognito window" through the task bar menu, it still shows as though it is available, BUT when you go to use it, it opens a normal browsing window. VERY CLEVER!!!

Also, I can't even access private browsing through the normal keyboard shortcut.

LOVE IT!!! Thanks for this great tool!!!

Cons

Not available for Mac

Summary

Works like a charm! Download and install, couldn't be easeier!
