Kako je Google ažurirao upozorenje o Chrome inkognito režimu

Google recently updated its warning about Chrome Incognito Mode following a recent lawsuit that resulted in a $5 billion settlement. The company has now become more explicit about data collection through this mode.

The new version of the warning clearly explains that Chrome Incognito Mode is not entirely private. While it protects the privacy of your secret purchases from other users of the same device, it does not protect against data collection by third parties, including Google itself.

Google agreed to settle the class-action lawsuit filed against them. The company argued that their initial warning was sufficient, but the judge disagreed and pointed out inconsistencies in that warning.

The changes to the warning include clearer and more precise statements about Google’s data collection practices. It also emphasizes that switching to Chrome Incognito Mode does not change the way data is collected by visited websites and Google’s services.

This new version of the warning is currently available in the development version of the Chrome browser but is believed to be soon available for all operating systems.

Although Chrome is a popular browser, there are other browsers that focus on user privacy and data protection. Users who want greater control over their data can explore alternatives that offer more privacy.

How does Chrome Incognito Mode work?

Chrome Incognito Mode allows users to surf the internet without storing browsing history and temporary files. This means that data about visited websites, downloads, and other activities in this mode will not be saved on the device.

Does Chrome Incognito Mode make browsing completely anonymous?

No, while Chrome Incognito Mode protects data from other users of the same device, it does not protect against data collection by third parties, including Google itself.

What alternatives are there for the Chrome browser?

There are plenty of other browsers that focus on user privacy and data protection, such as Mozilla Firefox, Brave, and DuckDuckGo.

What are the advantages of using private browsers?

Private browsers provide greater control over user data and reduce the amount of information collected and shared with third parties. These browsers often offer additional privacy protection features, such as tracking blockers and automatic browsing data deletion.
