Safe browsing involves everyone – you and us. For home environments and children, future releases are in our roadmap that involve browsers with incognito mode disabled or password protected. For controlled environments like schools, universities or businesses - we offer the possibility to disable Privacy mode completely.
Filtering in incognito mode is not enabled, due to just that reason – browsing on the current device is incognito. Essentially information that would be processed by the browser, locally on your device, simply gets ignored. What that means: the passwords that you type in, websites you visit, credentials that you use – none of that gets recorded on the device.
Why is that useful? Imagine you need to access your emails just for a moment or log in to your bank account, but your device ran out of battery. You can borrow a friend’s device and be quite sure, he or she will not have access to your information, once you are done.
What that means for filtering? Filtering needs to know what information you type in to be able to block it. If we are to enable the same kind of filtering in Incognito mode, as in the default browsing, it would mean loss of privacy, that incognito (privacy) mode gives.
