Incognito Mode In Chrome For Android Saves Some Browsing History

It turns out that Google’s privacy setting doesn’t quite live up to its name, although this should be fixed fairly soon.

After further experiments, he found that Chrome in Incognito Mode stored a list of sites to which he granted permission to store data locally, access the camera, microphone, or to the fullscreen mode. The Chrome bug is basically a bad implementation of Incognito Mode, which instead of keeping these permissions separately from the other browsing session permissions, it bundles them together.
