The incognito mode has been an indispensable part of Chrome and to the the people who use it in their day to day life, it has been enabling them to surf the internet privately without the fear of anyone else stumbling upon their browsing history. However you should never think of it as an completely anonymous mode for browsing the internet.
But there’s a problem with the incognito mode. The incognito mode won’t enable any of the Chrome extensions by default. So if you are surfing the internet in the incognito mode, you will miss your favorite extensions.
Fortunately you can manually enable the extensions to be displayed in Chrome’s incognito mode and you can even choose which extensions you want to enable. However you need to know that not all extensions can be enabled in Chrome’s incognito mode.
For those who need to enable extensions in Chrome’s incognito mode, here’s how you can do that.
How to Enable Extensions in Chrome’s Incognito Mode.
- Step 1: Click on the Chrome’s Menu and select More Tools > Extensions. ( Note: You can even manually enter chrome://extensions/ in Chrome’s URL address to access the extensions menu. )
- Step 2: Now you can see a list of extensions that are installed on Chrome. As I said before, not all extensions can be used in Chrome’s incognito mode, so only a few extensions would have a Allow in Incognito option below them. Select it and the extension will be enabled in Chrome’s incognito mode.
That’s it, the next time you use the incognito mode, you will be able to use your favorite extensions while surfing the web.
Chrome doesn’t allow extension in the incognito mode, as extensions are capable of reading your browsing history and store it. So if you are fine with that you can easily follow the above steps.
