Google menja politiku Incognito moda: Evo šta korisnici trebaju znati

Google recently updated its policy regarding data collection in Incognito mode to provide users with a clearer picture. While Incognito mode is intended to protect privacy during browsing, it is important for users to be aware that certain data can still be tracked.

The new message that appears when opening an Incognito tab is very clear about this. Users will be informed that although their search will not be saved in the browsing history, cookies, website data, and form information they fill out can still be tracked by internet service providers, company directors or school administrators (in the case of business devices), or website administrators they visit.

One of the advantages of Incognito mode is blocking third-party cookies, which is the default setting in this browser mode. This can be useful when a user wants to test whether websites function properly without specific cookies.

It is important to note that Incognito mode does not provide complete anonymity and data protection. If a user is concerned about physical access to their device or wants to be completely anonymous during browsing, it is recommended to use additional privacy tools such as virtual private networks (VPN) or the Tor browser.

Google faced a lawsuit regarding data collection during Incognito mode, and it is expected to pay a certain amount of money to users as part of a settlement. This step by the company in updating the warnings for Incognito mode aims to provide clear guidelines to users about its data collection policy.
