3 Steps to activate Mozilla Firefox incognito mode to start private browsing

Learn how to activate the incognito mode in Mozilla Firefox on your computer (PC) to start private browsing or anonymous browsing experience and avoid having a record of the websites you visit and the content you download. In simple 3 steps you can start to browse anonymously with Firefox or Firefox Quantum incognito mode.

When we browse and download content over the internet, we may want to keep our browsing and private searches did either to protect our privacy or because we do not want any of this data to be stored in the browser.

To prevent a record of browsing history from being saved, you must activate the incognito mode.

How does the incognito mode work?

When we use the incognito mode in our browser a new window opens to browse the Internet without a record of your browsing history, but your ordinary Mozilla Firefox window still exists. Keep in mind that the incognito mode does not make us invisible since your company or service provider will have access to your browsing activity.
