How to Enable an Extension in Chrome’s Incognito Mode?

Incognito (or private) windows hide your page visits and search history in your local browser on your device. So another person who also uses that same device wouldn’t see your browsing or search history. It makes Incognito mode an excellent way to hide info on a shared device, as it clears local browsing history once you close the window.

Incognito mode also adds some limited privacy protections; specifically, browsing data from an Incognito window doesn’t persist on local storage. It gives you empty storage once you open a new Incognito window.

Note: Enabling an extension in Incognito or private mode doesn’t somehow change the extension itself or make it any more secure. An extension vulnerable to hacks will remain so whether you’re in a regular or Incognito/private window.

By default, all installed extensions will be useless in the Google Chrome browser if you use Incognito mode. All extensions remain invalid in Incognito mode. If you would like to enable an extension in Incognito mode also, you need to allow permission to work in private browsing mode also.
